aboutusAbout Us

Ravenswood Community Services (RCS) provides the basics of food and supplies to our neighbors, respecting the dignity of all and creating community throughout Ravenswood and the surrounding neighborhoods. We strive to offer services and connections to resources that can help people realize health, stability, and self-sufficiency.

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.
