With support from our community partners, we’ll continue to feed, clothe, and provide a gathering place for Rhode Islanders in need. Good Neighbors would like to thank all of those who support our mission through their time and efforts.
Our core programs have continued to evolve to meet the changing needs of our guests. Because we only have one paid staff member we rely on the help of our volunteer staff and our strong partnerships to provide our clients the resources they need. We have increased our volunteer basis to include a large number of collaborations. Below is just a few of the groups we have teamed up with over the last year to ensure our clients provided the care they need.
