Rowan Helping Ministries is God’s love in action. We envision a community which helps provide for the essential physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of all its citizens.
The Robertson-Stanback Center and Jeannie’s Kitchen provide temporary shelter and services to Rowan County residents who have no alternative nighttime residence. Supportive services are available, and an individual case management approach is taken. Shelter residents receive breakfast, lunch, and supper at Jeannie’s Kitchen.
COVID-19 protocols and shelter policies must be followed.
