2011 was an incredibly challenging year for our community. RCS, its volunteers, and staff have done a phenomenal job responding to the growing number of people in need. Here is our list of accomplishments for last year:
The RCS Food Bank provided supplemental food for 55,353 individuals in Clearwater; and 69,678 individuals through the USDA Commodity program elsewhere in Pinellas County.

The Haven of RCS provided a wide array of domestic violence intervention and prevention assistance to 22,856 persons.

RCS Grace House provided a comfortable and dignified apartment to 570 individuals with no other place to call home, 369 of which were small children.
The RCS Thrift Store provided $22,904 worth of clothing, household goods, and furniture to 500 people in our community without resources to purchase these items.

192 families received assistance to prevent eviction or foreclosure, 456 families received help to keep their power on, and 1,220 people received transportation assistance.
RCS volunteers provided $700,000.00 equivalent in services this year.

We have done our work with an administrative cost of 6.8%.
