The River Center was founded in 2010 out of a desire to see members of the community work together for the good of the community. We are a community focused, grassroots, 501c3 that focuses on how best to serve our community with compassion. We are located in New Castle, but serve both the New Castle and Silt communities. Our mission statement “To identify and address unmet community needs with compassionate volunteerism” is lived out through our outreach teams as a way to encourage the creation of a unified, dynamic, and caring community. 

Our outreach teams serve the community in a wide variety of areas including:

  • Angel Tree Christmas gifts

  • School supplies

  • Two community gardens

  • Community enrichment classes such as finance, parenting, and nutrition

  • Emergency assistance for rent, utilities, food, clothing, vehicle repair, medical costs.

  • A weekly senior luncheon and activities

  • Totes of Hope youth food program

  • Meal Monkey weekly lunches for kids 18 and younger

  • Volunteer New Castle
