RCM (Reclaiming Community Membership) Our Philosophy:

We know this much: "Normal" is subjective. But, you can bet that people strolling through Eastern Market on a Saturday afternoon, or catching a movie at the Majestic, or eating dim sum at some little restaurant in Chinatown, all have some version of it. "Normal" people have a peer group that extends.

At RCM, we believe that this kind of every-day "normal" is attainable for everybody we support. But, it takes creativity. It takes thinking outside the box, taking chances, and realizing that most of the blue prints on which we, as social service providers, have built, leave a lot to be desired. To take individuals who have far too often been stuck in pre-cut programs that fit like someone else's hand-me-downs, and gives them a chance at an actual life.

Our philosophy is a simple one: we take people where they are "at". Whether they are starting over or just ready for something new, we start with the individual. Where do they want to live? How do they want to live? What really works for them? What can't they stand? And then, these answers in hand, we-together-make a plan.
