In 2019, we established the organization known today as IMPACT RI, and we provide education on financial literacy, renting, homeownership, and real estate. Our organization was founded by Janice Falconer, who had been homeless herself for many years. Things were looking bleak with parents who didn’t have much money and being unable to afford higher education.
However, she managed to buy her own home, get a master’s degree, and become a real estate agent.
Janice made a 5-year plan for herself. She set goals, accumulated knowledge, and fought hard to get where she is today. She now uses this same knowledge from her real life experiences and professional education to give back to others.
When the pandemic began in early March 2020, she saw the homeless population in Rhode Island increase even higher than it was before. Knowing what it was like to be homeless once and having established a financially stable lifestyle and home, she wanted to help her community.
IMPACT RI has received some grants from the government and other organizations, but their help is not enough. We need help from you to donate. Ever since we were first founded, there have been many who have come and gone because our organization could not pay them on a regular basis to work for us. Our resources to teach classes and provide them for free is dependent on grants and donations from people like you.
We want to continue to be able to help others. We want to prevent homelessness and help those who are currently homeless. We want every Rhode Islander to have the opportunity for financial and home stability. We want to be the people who can help those in need like Janice once was. We can make things easier for others with your help.
Even if you don’t think that you can contribute, every donation counts. We appreciate whatever you can donate to our cause!
If you still can’t donate, then we ask you to spread the word about our fundraiser. Reach out to your family and friends. They can spread the word, and maybe they will find someone who can.
What if someone you knew became homeless?
You can tell them about our organization and direct them to take action with changing their life. They can take classes at IMPACT RI for free.
All we ask is to donate or spread the word.
Help our organization help someone today!
Thank you for taking the time to read, donate, and spread the word!
