RESOURCES IN COMMUNITY HOPE HOUSE

Categories: Treasure Coast

Chapter staff was recently invited to attend the grand opening of the Fort Pierce Police Department’s Resources In Community Hope (R.I.C.H) House. Students in attendance were introduced to the game of golf using our large clubs and tennis balls.

The mission of the Fort Pierce Police Department is to reduce crime and enrich the quality of life through a collaborative partnership with all citizens. The R.I.C.H. House was established for the purpose of creating a safe haven for all those in need of services. It will be a place that fosters police and community relationships and provides a multi-purpose education and resource center for all ages to enhance their quality of life.

The R.I.C.H. House will rely heavily on community partnerships and support from non-profit organizations, businesses, and volunteers to make this program well-designed and successful. The R.I.C.H. House will provide curriculums geared towards educational assistance, conflict-resolution, socialization skills, and self-esteem building for children, parents, and seniors. Our Chapter is looking forward to working with the community and delivering our life skills program.
