RCS Grace House

Helping families facing homelessness

return to self-sufficiency 

Families are the fastest growing homeless population in the United States and in Pinellas County. 

RCS Grace House provides dignified apartment-style emergency shelter, to homeless families with children, for up to two months. The program works one-on-one with families through case management, providing education, increasing job readiness, and helping families save money in order to secure stable housing. 90% of families who complete the program move to stable housing. 

Food, clothing and household goods are available to residents.  With room for up to 80 people the facility consists of fourteen fully furnished apartments, a Computer Learning Center, Gillian's Rainbow Room and Butterfly Garden, laundry room, and playground.   

Residents must be able and willing to secure employment and take part in weekly life skills classes. Upon successful completion of the program, families are eligible to shop at RCS Thrift Store for furniture and household goods at no charge.

Throughout each week volunteers assist with maintenance, tutoring children, lifeskills presentations, and other program needs. Volunteers are essential to the success of the program, and we are grateful for our generous volunteers! 


Group volunteer projects are a great way to build teamwork, while making a big difference in people's lives. 

Volunteer groups and dedicated families participate in our Adopt an Apartment program, which allows us to quickly move new families in after an apartment becomes empty. Volunteers swoop in to a spruce up the home, painting, cleaning, hanging curtains, restocking supplies and sometimes refurnishing.  

Because of our great volunteers, families in a homeless crisis have a sense of dignity and hope when moving to RCS Grace House. Often, parents cry with relief when they see their new temporary home, as they had a different picture of what a homeless shelter looks like.
