Our Team

RARA has gone through several changes over the last few years, with the purchase of our building, modifications due to the pandemic, a new logo, and plans to renovate the Neighborhood Grocery, but we are as committed as ever to our core programming. These years have highlighted just how essential our services are, as even in the best of times, many people live only one incident away from not being able to make ends meet on their own. Whether it's due to sudden car trouble, missing work while caring for a family member, or receiving an unexpected bill, we are here to help in times of need. Thanks to our strong team of staff, board members, volunteers, and community supporters, we are well positioned to provide that assistance for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Lindsey Pérez, Executive Director
