provides individuals with disabilities ages 5–21 year-round therapeutically based age-appropriate recreational programs directed by specially trained and certified staff in a supportive environment that enhances socialization and communication skills. They can accept all children, regardless of ability or disability, because of their volunteers and the financial support of the community.

Lancaster County Food Hub
Rodgers & Associates is passionate about helping people by focusing on organizations that provide a path for people to become self-sufficient. Specifically, those that provide basic needs like food, clothing, shelter and transportation. This is also the mission of the Food Hub. Running out of space in 2012, the Food Hub needed to find a new location to better meet the needs of those they served. Rodgers & Associates helped the organization raise $1.2 million to enable a move their current home on North Queen Street in Lancaster. We continue to annually support the organization financially.Visit website
Thomas Jefferson wrote that the “pursuit of happiness” has to do with an internal journey to know ourselves and an external journey of selfless service to others. The outstanding men & women of SCORE who volunteer hundreds of hours of their time & talent must be the happiest people in our community. This chapter of SCORE has been recognized nationally as the Chapter of the Year twice in the past ten years. Rodgers & Associates is proud to be a sponsor in support of their efforts.Visit website
Tabor Community Services
Tabor serves the community by providing people the tools and inspiration to meet their housing and financial challenges. In January 2009, we learned Tabor was overwhelmed by the number of people needing their help to avoid foreclosure. Their backlog was pushed out six months just to get an appointment. We responded by donating our advisers to help with counseling and shrink the backlog. When they lost state funding for their Matched Savings for Tomorrow program in 2010, Rodgers & Associates stepped in to become the lead sponsor for this important program.Visit website
Rick and Jessica first learned of UDS when their church raised money for someone who needed a service dog. Rodgers & Associates became an annual supporter after a tour of their facilities revealed that training service dogs was only one of the services they provide. Accessible Home Modifications, Customized wheelchairs, In-Home Personal Care, and Adult Enrichment, are just some of the many ways UDS helps people with disabilities, including veterans and the elderly, lead more independent and fulfilling lives.Visit website
The Ware Center
Rodgers & Associates began a partnership with Millersville University to sponsor programming for the Ware Center through the first 10 years of operation. The firm continues to support the ARTS SMARTS summer camps by providing funds for scholarships so children can attend regardless of means. University of Pennsylvania researchers have demonstrated that a high concentration of the arts in a city leads to higher civic engagement, more social cohesion, and lower poverty rates. We believe the arts community is part of the way we can combat poverty in our community.Visit website
