With the new year almost upon us, we at the Rhode Island Foundation would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who in your own way do so much for Rhode Island.
When I began at the Foundation five years ago, Rhode Island was entering a recession. The economic downturn has had serious, wide-ranging effects on our communities. Our unemployment rate remains among the highest in the country, thousands of our neighbors face homelessness and hunger, and far too many children live in poverty. While our state’s economy has begun to rebound, the need remains great. To their credit, Rhode Islanders are not shrinking from these challenges!
There is a renewed spirit of determination and possibility. Read about this new spirit of determination.
