We help people.
Because 90,000 households in Rhode Island are struggling to meet basic needs, we help families with the essentials.
We not only believe in helping people through an immediate crisis but also funding programs that help people develop the tools to provide for themselves and their families. We provide one place for everyone to call when they need help.
Three simple numbers, one human connection. Call, text, or chat to find help with childcare, housing, health insurance, tax preparation, and more. Get help now.
We believe that being homeless should be rare and temporary, and recognize that thousands of Rhode Islanders struggle to afford housing. Find out more.
