NEW: HousingWorks RI Relocates to Roger Williams University, Providence Campus

Friday, July 20, 2012

 

HousingWorks RI is pleased to announce the relocation of its operations from The Rhode Island Foundation to the Providence campus of Roger Williams University (RWU) at 150 Washington Street, Suite 304. The move creates synergy between the strategic objectives of the University and the research, policy, and communications work of HousingWorks RI.

“The activities of HousingWorks RI offer a great complement to existing efforts at Roger Williams, including our Community Partnerships Center and our degree and certificate programs in community development,” said Peter Wilbur, RWU’s associate vice president of university relations. “From graduate assistants to undergrad internships to joint research projects, this collaboration comes with the potential for a variety of initiatives that will prove beneficial to both organizations.”

Roger Williams University has long valued a campus-wide commitment to the greater community. The University maintains a wide array of partnerships and initiatives that extend beyond the borders of campus and engage faculty and student expertise on topics ranging from the marine environment, historic preservation and law to small business assistance, the arts, community development and more.

“Roger Williams University has an obvious commitment to helping Rhode Island, and HousingWorks RI is excited to partner with them in important policy discussions in our state, especially in the areas of affordable housing and the economy,” said Ian Lang, Board Chair of HousingWorks RI. “We are grateful to the University for providing space on their downtown campus that allows our staff to interact with scholars and strengthen the organization’s research, policy, and communications work.”

HousingWorks RI acknowledges the early and continued support of The Rhode Island Foundation in fostering its growth, and for The Foundation’s leadership in meeting the critical needs of our state. HousingWorks RI also appreciates the financial support of The Rhode Island Foundation, Rhode Island Housing, and United Way of Rhode Island, as well as recent contributions from Bank of America, Citizens Bank, Webster Bank, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston. The benefits of these funding partnerships provide HousingWorks RI the opportunity to advance its mission and engage more Rhode Islanders around the critical issue of affordable housing.

HousingWorks RI’s new address is 150 Washington St., Suite 304, Providence, RI 02903. The new main telephone number is 401-276-4806. Staff emails and the group’s website (http://www.HousingWorksRI.org) will remain unchanged.
