Out Now

For more than half a century,  a social service agency in Cranston has stayed true to its mission of fighting the War on Poverty.

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.
