    First time I came they were nice told me that you could get bread anytime free, second time I showed up they told me they don't help financially I start asking all the questions and they said we just don't. I asked if they had a list of other places for services for electricity and stuff they said no they don't. I came today I was just looking at the bread for the calories and stuff. Was told you cannot get bread. And I said I was waiting for the food and she said we're not open. And I said okay I'll wait till 11. And she told me I couldn't wait inside. Absolutely no help. I do not have the gas to just go home this time I need to get food. I know the building's new, but they could put up signs additional parking and field no one allowed in building until 11. And greet everyone with a kind face. Nobody wants to beg for food. It's humiliating enough.

Description: RCS is a faith-based organization that addresses the basic needs of our 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 wanting to give of themselves to help others. Our primary programs include the Soup Kitchen, Clothing Closet and Homeless Shelter, but we have many other thriving programs that help nourish the whole person: mind, body and spirit. We offer many opportunities and welcome volunteer and monetary support for the following programs:
    soup kitchen
    clothing closet
    homeless shelter
    transportation assistance
    disaster relief and recovery
    food pantry
    rent & utility assistance
    enrichment programs
    STEP education with
    Craven Community College

We help the men and women who have lost their job for reasons beyond their control. We help the children who need a well-balanced meal when school is not in session. We help the families who have lost their homes from an unforgiving natural disaster and need a place to stay or assistance starting over. We help the women who have been abused and need a safe place to stay with their children. We help your neighbors, friends and family. It is our goal to help anyone who comes to us in their time of need by providing quality programs and services that provide assistance and promote self-sufficiency.
