Homelessness can happen to anyone. All it takes is a catastrophic illness, a loss of income, or a myriad of other unforeseen events. Today there are over 4,000 homeless Rhode Islanders, many who you may recognize as friends, family, or neighbors.

House of Hope Community Development Corporation is a non-profit organization founded in 1989 in Warwick, Rhode Island, with a mission to prevent and end homelessness in the state. We do this in two basic ways: providing affordable housing and by counseling homeless persons to help them overcome the various causes of their homelessness.

“We are ending homelessness.”
