CURRENT NEWS


WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE YOUR CITY MORE BEAUTIFUL TOO?


On May 25, 2016, the RCRC sponsored an information meeting dealing with putting homeless people to work by cleaning the freeways that run through our city. Such a program has worked well  for 2 years in Bakersfield, CA, so RCRC invited Sal Moretti, the Solid Waste Superintendent for the city of Bakersfield, CA, to speak about their program. Mr. Moretti works with the Bakersfield Homeless Center, which provides laborers who work with Cal Trans to clean the freeways that go through Bakersfield. The Bakersfield program has enabled numerous homeless people and their families to get off the streets.  The RCRC would like to share this program with your city.  Please copy and paste this Youtube url onto the address line of your browser to view Mr. Moretti's 39 minute presentation.

REDLANDS AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM


In 2016 the RCRC identified a need in our city whereby due to lack of transportation, underprivileged children are unable to attend after school tutoring. Their inability to do so put their graduation from high school in jeopardy. The RCRC partnered with the Redlands Unified School District and spearheaded a program that utilizes the vans at one of the larger churches in Redlands (Christ the King Lutheran). Volunteers from the church are the drivers. Insurance and driver background checks assure the students are in safe hands. RCRC hopes to expand the program when the fall semester begins, and to include after-school sports activities.

WHO WE ARE


The Redlands Charitable Resource Coalition (RCRC), based in Redlands, California, is comprised of people from non-profit and faith-based organizations and concerned residents of Redlands, who have come together to provide an online directory of critical referrals for impoverished people or those in crisis in our city.


The services listed on this Website include the names, addresses, Redlands Map location and contact information of groups that provide free food, free meals, free medical/dental/mental health service, shelter (temporary and long term), showers, laundry, job skills counseling, veterans services, addiction services and counseling for the re-entry of former inmates of the justice system, to mention only a few.

 

The Map can be accessed by clicking the Redlands Map link above.  The number next to each arrow on the Redlands Map corresponds to the number next to the name of the provider in the sections below.  Several providers are outside the Map area and directions to their locations are included here.  They are set forth here and in the Resource Guide because of the unique essential service they provide and because their service is not available in Redlands.
