Randy and Friends - celebrating life together...it happens at the Rooster's Perch:
We are a typical coffee house where
people spend time with friends, talking and laughing or,
maybe, playing a game. We are unique because you might get to meet and better understand people you
may never have had a chance to meet.

is a regular at the Rooster's Perch. "I love being down here.
This is a very nice place." He comes to hang out
with friends, but he volunteers his time to help out also.
He says he would rather be working, and has had a
variety of experiences. "I will even do a job I do not like,
to have a job. You can't make a living if you don't have a job."
But he says he does miss everyone when he can't get to the Rooster's Perch.
wanted to tell everyone how happy I am at the Rooster's Perch.
I have purpose there while making new friends.
The volunteers assist me with projects, and I have had great success selling my fishing lures and turkey calls.
Everyone gets along there, and I feel encouraged and loved.
Thank you for your vision and love. May God continue
to bless the Rooster's Perch.
I like the Rooster’s Perch because I like to hang out
with my Friends, the cooking classes,
and the people are nice and friendly.
The Perch is a wonderful place to
meet new friends and not be judged
by your disabilities. I always feel welcome
here, like I’m a part of the family.

The Perch has been a real blessing to me, because
I can come here and be with others who have disabilities
and not be judged.
