Summer Appeal 2021

Over the past year, we have witnessed firsthand the number of Rhode Islanders experiencing homelessness, skyrocket. In May 2021, there were 390 Rhode Islanders living in “places not meant for human habitation” – cars, RVs, tents, and the streets. The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated that there is an affordable housing crisis here in Rhode Island.

House of Hope CDC believes housing is a basic human right. A second chance at life.
