Rose Avenue helps families to build community, support stability and foster transformation by providing for physical concerns ranging from food, clothing, and other assistance, like budgeting and life skills training, designed to provide a hand up to those seeking new life.

Modern Woodmen members will also purchase and deliver additional items most needed for the center.

Modern Woodmen improves the quality of life for members and the communities where they live, work and play. This is done through financial guidance and social, educational and volunteer activities. It’s all part of what makes Modern Woodmen unique as a fraternal financial services organization.
