JOPLIN, Mo. – We are visiting the ROCC at 14th and Main in Joplin.
ROCC stands for “Recovery Outreach Community Center”, which makes it a perfect link with “The Non-Permitted Project”. This is the president of Non-Permitted, Kyle Tracy. “My mission is to reach out to the community they’re in, to bring that spark of hope back into the community and we’re talking about mental illness and different things and part of that is recovery, when you are going through recovery. , you get a better understanding of who you are as an individual and that’s a perfect and amazing basis for that.
There’s an event coming up this Friday, which we’ll get to in a moment. There will be a number of groups including Vagabond Grove. We asked the leader, Caleb Miller, why this event is so important. “Mental health is a big part of what we do with the unlicensed and it’s a big part of myself, I had a lot of my own struggles there so being able to support other people and being able to support groups that help others is just huge for me.
On Friday, they will be holding a special fundraiser at ROCC. Tracy says “Friday August 27th we’ll have four bands, Fox Royale, The Darters, Blister Soul and Vagabond Grove and the Drifting Heads here, the doors will open at 6.30am, there will be food trucks and everything.”
As Kyle mentioned, the Back to School Bash and Fundraiser takes place this Friday August 27 at 6:30 p.m. at ROCC, 1402 South Main in Joplin. The money raised will be used to support the unauthorized project, the National Alliance Against Mental Illness, Black Box and of course the ROCC.
