RCS is a faith-based organization addressing the basic needs of the community by providing food, clothing, and shelter to those who need it most. We have a diverse group of volunteers who come to us from local churches and businesses; all giving of themselves to help others. Our primary programs include the Community Kitchen, Clothing Closet, and Temporary Shelter, but we have other thriving programs to help nourish the whole person: Mind, body, and spirit. RCS always welcomes volunteer and monetary support for the following programs:
Disaster relief and recovery
Employment Readiness Boot Camps with Craven Community College
