Here Are A Few of the Good Things Happening In Our Community

A Wish Come True, the oldest wish granting organization in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, grants wishes to local children suffering with a life threatening illness as their parents struggle to support the entire family.

Cornerstone Adult Services, a member of Saint Elizabeth Community, provides day health services to frail elders and adults with disabilities, including those with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.  Our mission is to help older adults and those with disabilities remain at home, in the community, for as long as possible, while supporting families as primary caregivers.

The House of Hope CDC has a mission to prevent and end homelessness in the state and end the personal and social trauma of homelessness.  We create affordable housing delivered with life changing services and work with other advocates for policies to ensure that everyone can have a safe stable home.
