The Rock provides wholesome meals as well as many other services to the homeless community. The staff is focused on people and their needs. Much of the daily work is done by volunteers - so that the funds can be used to provide for those in need. Some of the services provided are: laundry, clothing, showers, telephone, mail receipt, legal aid and haircuts. Truly a ministry with concern for the whole person.
The Rock makes a tremendous difference for so many in our community. Amazing food is served and the compassionate staff and volunteers make it a great place. If you are looking for a place to help others, this is it. They help everyone who walks through the doors.
I love The Rock at NoonDay ministry! They truly live their mission and take care of those in the most need and often those who are not being served anywhere else.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35 (ESV):
I was not sure what to expect when I first walked in the door but I quickly felt the Love of Christ from the staff and volunteers! They have a genuine heart for those in need. The staff go out of their way to make those being served feel loved and are treated like a family. They know the names of many of the homeless and are quick to greet them and brighten their day. When you have volunteers who love to come in and give of their time speaks not only of their giving hearts but also of how the ministry is run. The current staff is amazing. The meals are nutritious and delicious and the messages are Spirit filled. The Rock @ NoonDay is such a blessing to the city of Albuquerque.
The Rock at Noonday is awesome! Love to volunteer there because of the friendly atmosphere and warm smiles. Great team that organizes us each week, consistent and you know what to expect. Thanks for being my favorite nonprofit!!
Initially volunteering at the Rock at NoonDay (RAN) took a step of faith. I did not know what to expect, because up until then, the only interaction with the homeless , was in a parking lot being asked for spare change. That was always a scary. What if i said no, what if they acted unpredictably, then what?
My first day volunteering to serve lunch at the RAN changed me forever. I went from apprehensive interactions to seeing the homeless as brothers and sisters in Christ. Not only did the staff warmly welcomed me, but I found it a safe place to place food in their hands, look them in the eye and say "God Bless you brother, I hope you enjoy the meal. Now when I meet a homeless person I can share God's love and invite them to share a meal with the other volunteers and staff members. My life was changed, so can yours.
I started volunteering at the rock at noon day in December 2015 and I was humbled by the amount of volunteers willing to help out people in need since then I have brought my family to help out and they have been very humbled by the Experience. The RAN is always close to my heart and I volunteer as much as I can I'm so glad that my city and the volunteers I work with reach out and do what they can and I feel blessed by this
The Rock at Noonday is a wonderful partner to the other organizations that are providing housing to those experiencing homelessness. I have provided outreach at Noonday for a number of years and they graciously provided me with the office space and other resources. The staff and volunteers there are the best and I cannot describe my gratitude for their support and for all they do for our homeless brothers and sisters.
