A Rodgers & Associates Core Value

One of our priorities is the common purpose of improving the lives of all neighbors while being a good steward of our resources.

Diversity among people, ideas, thinking, and beliefs expands our perspec­tives and helps change the world for the better.

Since our founding, the firm has been committed to making an important difference in the lives of all people. Supporting a strong, vibrant community is important to all team members. In addition to directly supporting these organi­za­tions, Rodgers & Associates also offers a refined gathering space free of charge for small events for nonprofits who serve the community.

  • lancaster county food hub logo

    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.

    SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon

    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.

    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.

    UDS

    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.

    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.
