To show the power of small groups working together in the community by inspiring hope, aiding, and contributing to those in need in the River Region
To enhance the quality of life and rehabilitate teenagers and young adults experiencing homelessness in the River Region
Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to serving disadvantaged communities in the River Region by providing life necessities to individuals experiencing homelessness.
Founder and CEO Alvin Rowell established the name “Quiet Storm” several years before the organization was created based on a vision. The name refers to the “quiet” way his organization serves those who are going through a storm in life.
Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. provides direct community outreach to individuals experiencing homelessness in the River Region. They meet people where they are, no matter the circumstances. Although the Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. team is small in size, the organization has already served more than 3,000 disadvantaged individuals since its inception in 2019. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. Founder Alvin Rowell self-funded these initiatives to continue supporting those in need.
In addition to direct community outreach, Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. administers emergency relief services by providing life necessities and hygiene items to victims of natural disasters. During major natural disasters in Jefferson and Montgomery Counties, Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. has supported emergency management organizations like the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with additional supplies to aid affected individuals during disastrous events in the community where we all live together.
Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. also provides survivor support, supplying domestic violence survivors with hygiene products and connecting individuals experiencing homelessness with resources for rehabilitation.
The Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. team constantly undergoes professional training, continuing education, and development to provide the highest quality support for the individuals they serve. In 2022, the organization became the first nonprofit service provider in Alabama to receive a scholarship through PROCEED Incorporated to attend the 2nd Health Equity Summit for service providers. With a small team of dedicated, passionate, and selfless servant leaders, Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc. takes the world by storm by positively impacting the lives of the less fortunate wherever they are.
Alvin Rowell, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Quiet Storm Outreach Group Inc., has always possessed an intense passion for helping people. From a young age, he found joy in helping others and making an impact in the community. He received a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology from Alabama State University before joining the workforce in roles that allowed him to directly connect with the community. Rowell diligently served others in his role at a government services organization in Jefferson County for several years before receiving a vision to directly help the less fortunate.
After receiving this calling, Rowell decided to use what he had to enhance the quality of life of individuals experiencing homelessness in Jefferson County. He began going out into the community and providing disadvantaged individuals with basic life necessities, such as food, water, and hygiene items. Within 15 minutes of his first community encounter, he was able to provide more than $200 dollars worth of necessities to underserved communities.
Seeing the radical impact of that small gesture led to the birth of his organization to serve individuals experiencing homelessness. After retiring from government services in 2021 in Jefferson County, AL, Rowell returned to his hometown of Montgomery, AL to aid those in need in the Montgomery area. To better support the less fortunate, Rowell continuously participates in professional development opportunities and receives mental health training through the Alabama Department of Public Health. He also serves as a Task Force Advisor for the City of Montgomery and the Montgomery Area Coalition for the Homeless and previously participated on the Census Bureau Homeless Task for Jefferson County, AL, in 2020.
