History
The Roarke Center was founded in 1997 by the Daughters of Charity. It is named after Sr. Mary Basil Roarke, DC, a native of south Troy. In 2008, the Roarke Center became part of the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany. In 2013 the immediate supervision of the Roarke Center was shifted to the newly created agency of Catholic Charities Tri County Services. The Roarke Center has a history of mission driven services to assist the poor and marginalized people living in Troy to empower them. The various programs work collaboratively along with other community providers.
