For more than half a century, a social service agency in Cranston has stayed true to its mission of fighting the War on Poverty. From Head Start preschool classes and a food bank, to a furniture donation exchange and an array of health services, the nonprofit Comprehensive Community Action Program served 40,000 people in need last year. This month, Jim Hummel takes us inside the agency that everyone knows as CCAP.
Highlighting Community Heroes
About Rhode Island Spotlight
The Rhode Island Spotlight is a 501(c)3 non-profit. The mission of the Rhode Island Spotlight is to highlight and celebrate community heroes, both individuals and organizations, that are making a significant, positive difference for fellow Rhode Islanders.
