Rebel Rodriguez

Shelter Operations Manager

In 2012 I received my bachelor's degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a concentration in nonprofits. I started my work shortly thereafter at The Rising Church in Arvada. I was Foodbank Director for eight years and during that time implemented the ability for our guests to get showers, then added the clothing bank and then eventually started as Director of Mission Arvada at The Rising. I was director for two years before moving on to caring for children whose parent's needed childcare during COVID when daycares were closing.

I love what nonprofits do for our communities and cannot imagine doing anything else. I especially appreciate working with people and families experiencing homelessness due to getting to know many personally working at the church. I developed relationships with individuals and families that impacted me greatly.

I love living in Colorado and enjoy being outdoors. I have fun riding off road ATV's, camping and hiking our many trails.
