JULIET ROGERS Executive Director

Juliet joined RCS in August of 2012. She has two great kids, Kelly and Julian, and a really cute husband, Richard. New Bern has been home for 13 years and a wonderful place to raise her kids. She is lucky to have her Mom and Dad living in New Bern as well. She loves RCS because it loved her first, and she looks forward to lots of years serving the people of New Bern and surrounding counties.

DONNA BRADSHAW Associate Director

Donna's position as Associate Director ensures that any changes are communicated to all front desk volunteers.  After 30 plus years at Coastal Women’s Shelter, Donna decided to make a change. She has successfully completed case management, and shelter director duties at CWS, and felt she could use that vast array of experience to make a difference at RCS. She has been married for 25 years and has 3 children.


Susan began working with RCS as a soup kitchen volunteer, but joined the team in 2014 as the Finance Manager for RCS. Susan and her husband moved to New Bern in 2007 with their 3 children and truly feel that it was a blessing from God that relocated them to the area. They have enjoyed being a part of the New Bern community. She had spent most of her past time as a highly active volunteer in the school system and is looking forward to the time ahead of her serving with RCS.
