Community Resources

Below you will find a list of other community resources that may be able to offer aid. The Rochester Mutual Aid Network is only a small part of the mutual aid community, and we'd like to connect neighbors with each other as best as we can. Please check out the list below, and check back often as we're always trying to expand on it!

We've done our best to organize these into groups, so if you're looking for aid in a specific area, you can jump to it and get contact information.
