Join the fun in October by walking to help Rhode Island families in need of shelter at the 25th annual Shelterwalk.

Don't miss a fun way to make a difference in the community, particularly when it comes to Rhode Island families in need.

Family Resources Community Action will hold its 25th Annual ShelterWalk on Saturday October 19th at River Island Park in Woonsocket. Proceeds from the event support the Woonsocket Shelter and homelessness prevention programs. In addition to addressing emergency needs, families are connected to supports such as employment training and financial literacy to help them transition to safe, permanent housing.

How to get involved

Individuals, families and teams from schools, churches, businesses and neighborhoods are encouraged to participate. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more information about how to get involved as a sponsor, walker or volunteer, please visit or contact Wendy Pires at 401-235-6096.

Registration begins at 9:00 am, and the walk kicks off at 10:00 am
