Religious Community Services

Our Mission

Religious Community Services (RCS) began with a simple pot of soup in the back of Sister Angela Mary Parker's station wagon in 1982.
Today, nearly 40 years later, our community concept has grown and evolved into a faith-based organization that addresses the basic needs of our community by providing food, clothing, and shelter to those who need it most. God calls us to serve our community with compassion and faith, and 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, Buy A Bag Boutique, and Emergency Crisis Shelter.

We have other programs such as transportation assistance, rent and utility assistance, disaster relief and recovery, emergency food pantry, prescription assistance, and employment readiness boot camps with Craven Community College to help nourish the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Through our various programs and services, we strive to empower permanent life change by building a supportive community and engaging people holistically
