Each year during the holidays Roca hopes to provide a gift for each young man and woman in our program. We would appreciate your contribution to Roca’s Holiday Gift Drive by purchasing from among the items listed here for Massachusetts and HERE for Baltimore. We will be distributing the gifts during the Roca holiday parties for the young men and women in December.

Roca’s Mission is to Disrupt the Cycle of Incarceration and Poverty by Helping Young People Transform Their Lives.
