Who We Are

Child & Family supports resilient families, vulnerable children, and elders throughout Rhode Island. Family Preservation is an important goal of every program and service we provide. We believe that individuals and communities thrive when supported by strong families, and that a community works best when it accepts responsibility for all of its members. As one of the largest social service agencies in RI, we operate community engagement centers in Providence and Middletown. Our home-based and community-based programs bring services to individuals and families across RI.
