Our annual #MakingWaves campaign is one way for you to show your support and help us do the year-round work needed to end homelessness. Your donation is the biggest vote of confidence and show of support. #MakingWaves brings you the latest of latest data regarding RI homelessness, which we hope inspires you to share our organization & mission with others.
This year we are elated to be partnering with Rhode Island Spirits' Tasting Room for an exclusive #MakingWaves event for our most involved supporters. If you are passionate about ending homelessness, and would like to join us for our summer #MakingWaves event please contact Deputy Director Margaux for more information.
Together we can
to end homelessness
Every summer we come together as a community to make waves of change. For over thirty years the Rhode Island Coalition to End Homelessness has worked collaboratively with service providers, faith-based organizations, advocates, and constituents to make lasting changes to end and prevent homelessness.
The pandemic has exponentially sped up trends and thrusted more and more people into homelessness than ever before. On any given night, over 1000 individuals and 500 family members experience homelessness in Rhode Island. On a single night in January of 2022, 248 persons are experiencing homelessness unsheltered—meaning they are living in places not meant for human habitation (cars, tents, benches, etc.).
We've spent the last year working endlessly to stem the tides, but the work is truly only beginning. We need your help to continue this work.
