For 55 years, RCMA has cared for rural, low-income children and families throughout Florida.
We are here for our families and communities today, as we work together to help everyone stay healthy, safe and fed.
We are closely monitoring the information provided by the Florida Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control. Pursuant to that information, we plan to keep as many of our child development centers open for as long as possible, to support our hard-working parents, especially those picking in the fields right now at the height of Florida’s agricultural season whose work is essential to feeding the nation.
We provide nutritious meals for our children while they are at our centers and recently established a food distribution program to assure that those RCMA parents who are temporarily out of work are able to feed their families. Cleaning supplies are also being distributed (as those supplies last), so we are an important resource to them.
Read this note from Executive Director Isabel Garcia about our commitment.
YOU can help!
- Make a monetary donation, so we can purchase necessary materials.
- If you have extra bleach and other cleaning products, please send donations to the center closest to you.
