"Imagine not knowing where you will sleep tonight. Imagine not knowing where you will get your next meal. Now imagine that the help of one person and one organization, could get you through this. You could be the person that helps bring comfort and joy to your Rhode Island neighbors with Crossroads Rhode Island."
At a time when Rhode Island is facing the highest state poverty and rent burden rate in New England, Crossroads Rhode Island has taken this issue head on by providing 24 hour assistance and programs to help find solutions to both immediate and long-term needs.
Come tour the facility with Karen Santilli (LRI '10) and learn what Crossroads Rhode Island is doing to address this "historic demand from families facing housing crises".
Karen Santilli joined Crossroads Rhode Island in February 2008 and currently serves as the Vice President of Marketing and Development. The mission of Crossroads Rhode Island is to help the homeless and disconnected on their journey toward a better quality of life. Under Karen’s leadership, Crossroads’ donations have increased from $1.9 million in 2008 to $2.8 million in 2011.
