Local Homeless Shelters

January 2022

Rhode’s Island’s Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD) is in the process of identifying locations to create winter shelters for families and individuals experiencing homelessness.  The program aims to begin as soon as possible and will operate through the end of April 2022.

  • There is funding for security, case management, food, and transportation (if needed).  For more information, please e-mail Maryrose Mensah at mensah@doa.ri.gov.

Potential locations may be smaller, non-congregate shelters or could be hotel/motels and OHCD is in the process of identifying who can operate the buildings.
