Our Work

The Rhode Island Coalition has four main areas of work: policy & advocacy, constituent engagement, systems transformations, and training & support for service providers. You can learn more about our goals and decision making philosophy by reading our strategic plan here.

Policy & Advocacy

Policy & Advocacy

Every year, the Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless works to develop a platform of General Assembly legislation to promote our mission and goals locally and federally.

Voices of Homelessness | Constituent Engagement

CES is the front door to homelessness services. Coordinated entry is a consistent, community wide process to help match those experiencing homelessness to community resources that are the best fit for their situation.

Homeless Management & Information System

HMIS is a computerized data collection tool specifically designed to capture client-level, system-wide information over time on the characteristics and services needs of individuals and families with children experiencing homelessness.

Trainings
