Introducing a Brand-new Fundraising Event

 

 

Our Luncheon & Forum—Unhoused & Unhealthy—Barriers & Strategies to Healthcare addresses the cycle that many unhoused people go through for medical needs. This repeated cycle through ER's, clinics, hospitals, and facilities only to return once more to the streets is ineffective. We know there is a 60% higher mortality rate for these individuals that those that are housed. In January, 539 people were sleeping outdoors or in cars in RI alone. It's time we acknowledge the disparities, barriers and find strategies and solutions.

 

This event will feature a panel comprised of professionals who are developing creative ways to bring healthcare to the unhoused. Join us to learn how they are applying these strategies in their work and how you can too.

The Dali was refloated during high tide Monday morning and five tugboats helped to guide the massive vessel the two-and-a-half miles to the Seagirt Marine Terminal.

The vote is scheduled for June 13th.
