RCR announces partnership with a local non-profit called Rochester Hope
[Rochester, New York] — Rochester Clinical Research (RCR) has announced its partnership with Rochester Hope, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing vital services and support to the local community. This collaboration represents a powerful commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of Rochester residents and addressing pressing community needs.
In response to the evolving needs of our community, Rochester Hope came into existence in early 2021. Facing financial challenges that threatened the closure of Saint Michael Church, a group of dedicated individuals saw an opportunity to transform adversity into action. Their shared commitment to serving the community led to the birth of this remarkable organization.
In July 2021, Rochester Hope officially took form as an independent nonprofit entity, free from any religious affiliations. Their mission? To harness the potential of underutilized Cabrini Parish buildings for the greater good of our community
As part of its commitment to community welfare, Rochester Clinical Research has joined forces with Rochester Hope to provide essential services to those in need. One of the cornerstones of this partnership is the monthly gathering hosted by Rochester Hope, where the local community comes together to receive nourishment and various forms of assistance.
“We are excited to partner with Rochester Hope in their commendable efforts to serve our community,” said Kelley Powers, Head of Site Operations. “At RCR, we believe in the power of community engagement and giving back. Our shared values with Rochester Hope make this partnership a natural fit, and we are eager to contribute to the positive impact they have been creating in Rochester.”
One of the initiatives we’re introducing through this partnership is the implementation of biometric screening: comprehensive health assessments. By providing biometric screening at Rochester Hope’s community gatherings, RCR aims to enhance the health and well-being of local residents. These screenings will offer valuable insights into individuals’ health metrics, empowering them to make informed decisions about their health.
“Our collaboration with Rochester Hope is an exciting development for Rochester Clinical Research and the community we serve,” remarked Jean Kelly, Associate Director of Clinical Operations. “Rochester Hope’s commitment to community health aligns perfectly with our mission here at RCR. Together, we can expand our reach and provide even more comprehensive support to those who rely on us.”
Rochester Hope’s mission is to create a stronger, more resilient community by offering essential services, compassionate care, and a helping hand to those facing challenges. Through this partnership with RCR, Rochester Hope aims to extend its impact further and reach more individuals in need.
Both organizations are enthusiastic about the opportunities this partnership will create and are dedicated to fostering a stronger, healthier, and more vibrant Rochester community. Together, they believe in making a difference—one life at a time.
