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.
RICO recognizes that certain communities have devolved into permanent pockets of poverty where people are underserved, underemployed, poorly housed, homeless, neglected and forgotten. It is the mission of RICO to address these concerns by focusing on four core areas: 1) Social Services, 2) Health Literacy/Nutrition and Screenings, 3) Education and School Based Support, 4) and Services to needy families and homeless populations.
The goal of the Education and School Base Support provides every student with book bags and school supplies to begin the school year ready to learn. It reduces related financial stress for parents as well as shame for student who cannot afford book bags and school supplies. As far as outcomes are concerned, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smiles on students faces when they receive very own book bag filled with supplies.
