Holy Family Home News

The growing number of homeless families in our state and the decreasing availability of affordable housing is a serious crisis which shows little effort of resolution in the near future. Currently Holy Family Home provides for 11 families with one room reserved for emergencies from our parishes. We receive many inquires daily from all over the state for help which we are unable to assist. Because of this we are weighing options of a possible expansion of our mission beyond 979 Branch Avenue to an additional building which would serve as an annex to place eligible families ready for independent living. If anyone knows of a possible apartment building in the Providence, North Providence, or Fairlawn Pawtucket area that may be available or if anyone wants to donate a building that can be converted to apartments please contact Father Ed.
