is a coalition of individuals and welfare
rights groups organized whose mission is:
to empower people on welfare to effect positive change in their lives, the welfare system, and other institutions that impact their lives.
WROC’s goal is to change the welfare system so that it treats welfare recipients fairly and with dignity.
WROC empowers recipients through education, leadership development, grassroots action, and through the creation of a support network for its members. We network with other organizations and individuals to dispel the myths about welfare and to create a broad power base to effect change on the local, state, and national levels.
