We provide a range of supportive housing from independent apartments to 24-hour high support. We also offer case management and support services to residents and clients out in the community. We have an extensive employment program including our social purpose enterprise, the Steam Team, and a strong peer support program. This extensive and varied community involvement has been the driving force behind the expansion and development of RCS.

No Matter who you are,
No Matter where you go in life,
You’re goin’ to need somebody
To stand by you….
‘Stand By Me’ is a famous song but it is also a simple request from our members who we support in the recovery process. Some of our clients need supportive housing, others need a tireless advocate to help them with their challenges, and others need to know we are there for them when they need us. Just like you and me, they all need support in difficult times.
