Residents of 38 out of 39 Rhode Island towns experienced homelessness at some point during the year 2002. Recognizing that homelessness is a statewide problem, the State of Rhode Island developed a plan to end homelessness in ten years. Their plan, “Building Homes, Building Hope: Ending Homelessness in Rhode Island” addresses the needs of Rhode Island residents in five main areas: more affordable housing, sufficient income, services and treatment alongside housing, homelessness prevention strategies, and greater political will and community involvement.
