Ravenswood Community Services (RCS) provides resources to neighbors in need and creates opportunities for individual and community outreach in the Ravenswood and Uptown neighborhoods on the north side of Chicago. We realize this mission by connecting our neighbors with the basics of food and supplies, health screenings and information and life skills education so that they can achieve health, stability and dignity.
Vision: Neighbors helping neighbors.
RCS strives to be a place where people, neighbors – whether those in need or those of means – are fed, welcoming all who come to our doors, treating each with dignity. Our hunger relief programs work to provide nutritionally balanced bags of groceries and meals of the same quality we all want for our own families. We include fresh milk and bread each week and offer alternative items for those neighbors without access to a kitchen.
RCS' programs bring together people from all sides of the economic divide in our changing neighborhood. Through our common goals, individual gifts and shared vision for the future of our neighborhood and the wider community Ravenswood Community Services strives to be force for positive change in our corner of the world.
