The focus of Regis House has been on families and children, offering a variety of educational, recreational and social service programs at low or no cost. No one is turned away for the inability to pay.
Regis House Community Center (RHCC) is funded by
the Juniors of Social Service, private donations and foundation grants.
Regis House Community Center shares the goal of the Sisters of Social Service to provide a nurturing environment for people living in the local community. We believe that change can be accomplished by developing awareness and interest where the needs of the neighborhood are concerned. It is our intention to help families help themselves by working directly with individuals and groups by offering quality educational and social programs, and by providing resources to assist and empower them.
