To better serve and help those in need in our community has always been of paramount importance to the ministry of ROLF. Since Aug. 2012, ROLF launched a new community program "Bay Area Chinese Emergency Relief " targeting the urgent needs of the local Chinese community. This program is established to help those inflicted by emergency or disaster to get timely financial aid in order to cope with the financial crisis incurred by the emergency. The spirit of this service is "to provide a hand up, not a hand out", therefore financial aid will be provided as a "one-time" help only. The purpose is to mitigate the financial impact on the recipients and thus help them ride out the storm.


Who are eligible to apply:

San Francisco Bay Area residents of Chinese descent who suffer from financial crisis due to emergency or disaster.


How to apply:

  1. The principal can call ROLF (408-567-0877) directly or email to ROLF at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  2. Third party proxy: A third party who knows of the situation of a disaster-inflicted individual can act as the proxy of the victim. They can call ROLF for the details about applying on behalf of the disaster victim.


Aid amount:

Depending on the situation of each case, an amount between $500~$3000 will be granted to the disaster victim.
