Welcome to Lucy’s Hearth
At Lucy’s Hearth, our team is passionate about helping children and their families who are experiencing homelessness due to economic hardship, family crisis, divorce, eviction, and severe shortage of safe, affordable housing. Our primary goal is to foster independence and help the residents gain the life skills necessary to find stable housing and prevent future homelessness.
We are so thankful for your support!
The challenges families dealing with homelessness are facing right now are immense. We are proud to be achieving things – like continuing to house people during a global pandemic, and innovating new ways to do so. Your continued support allows Lucy’s Hearth to continue to provide high-impact programs to address family homelessness across Rhode Island. We are all in this together.
