This is the question many Rhode Islanders have asked since March 2020, and will continue to ask through the summer.
On any given night, 325 families and 730 single adults experience homelessness in Rhode Island. But this summer, more will be in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
By joining our Making Waves campaign, you can raise funds to renew our year-round advocacy efforts, preserve our Voices of Homelessness program, and maintain the Coordinated Entry and Homeless Management Information Systems.
Most importantly, your help means another year spent fighting for all Rhode Islanders' right to a safe home.
Together, we can turn the tide on homelessness, will you #MakeWaves with us?
