Caring During Coronavirus
For 56 years, RCMA has cared for rural, low-income children and families throughout Florida.
We remain committed to our families – the majority of whom have experienced loss of income – as we help everyone stay healthy and safe.
Despite not being budgeted, but deemed necessary, we gave Chromebooks to each charter school student and WiFi hot spots to hundreds of families, so we can provide distance learning. We stay in touch with all our families during weekly phone calls to assess their needs.
We have applied for more than $1 million in emergency grants and received more than $250,000 in these funds and individual donations to help our children and families. We use this money to purchase and distribute food, formula, diapers and cleaning supplies, and to pay their rent and utilities.
Florida’s most vulnerable children and families need us more than ever.
Please give as generously as you can to help our hard-working migrant families, essential workers picking crops in the fields of open farms as part of our nation’s food supply chain.
