R.O.O.C., Inc.

Supporting people with disabilities to lead integrated and independent lives in their communities.

ROOC’s History


In 1968, Wilma Crawford, Basil Godbold, Larry Meier, and Ralph Sperry presented the concept of establishing a sheltered workshop for adults with disabilities to the C.O.O.R. Area Parent’s Association. In 1969, through the efforts of these individuals, a satellite program of another workshop was opened. The operation was first located in the old Gerrish Township Hall. In 1970 the Parent’s Association filed with the State of Michigan for R.O.O.C. to become a non-profit corporation under the governance of the C.O.O.R. Intermediate School District (ISD). After a brief time operating in the old St. Helen school building, in 1978 ROOC moved into a new facility at its current location atop Pioneer Hill in Roscommon. In 1981 ROOC partnered with North Central Community Mental Health (now called Northern Lakes Community Mental Health) to expand their work operations and include day program services.


Since then, our agency has grown to provide a wide range of services to youth and adults with disabilities. Our services include:


  • Organizational Employment
  • Skill Building Services
  • Community Integration
  • Community Employment
  • Vocational Assessments
  • School-to-Work Transition
  • Respite Care
  • Community Living Supports
