Redeeming Influence Community Outreach, Inc. (RICO), is a nonprofit social service organization committed to providing quality and affordable services to the less fortunate, undeserved, and homeless populations in Lee County Florida. RICO incorporated in May 2016, filed for and was granted its 501(c) 3 tax exempt status that same year.
Founded by Dr. William and Cheryl Glover, RICO recognizes that many communities in Lee County are blighted, economically depressed, crime ridden, and have devolved into permanent pockets of poverty. The people who live in these pockets of poverty are frequently underserved, underemployed, poorly housed, homeless, neglected and often forgotten. RICO seeks to fill this vacuum and stem this tide of neglect.
Built on a foundation of providing services to the homeless, nutritious food and dietary education, health and dental screenings, after school educational support programs, school supplies and book bags for needy children and families, RICO seeks to be true to its's name, to have a redeeming influence upon our community!
