The founders of Ro-Am.Net, having successfully passed the test of time, integrity, and dedication to the community, initiated the idea of creating the Romanian Heritage Center as a Christian faith based neutral independent community center.
The Ro-Am.Net will continue with its mass communication and media projects as a completely separate media organization than the Romanian Heritage Center.
Being set up as a new and independent not-for-profit organization, the Romanian Heritage Center’s leadership team includes professionals who represent all the Christian denominations of our community, all willing to serve the next generation of Romanian-Americans, those born, raised, and educated in the United States.
The Romanian Heritage Center NFP, as a faith based religious, civic and cultural organization, will dedicate its efforts to preserve and advance Romanian Christian heritage and ethnic awareness, through various programs and activities as described in our Purposes.
The Romanian Heritage Center NFP aims to be of service not only to the ethnic Romanian-Americans but also to anyone wishing to know more about our culture and traditions.
We are committed to provide exceptional service and a great experience to all who wish to connect with us.
