Operation First Step
Operation First Step Emergency Assessment Shelter at Crossroads Rhode Island assists clients who are new to homelessness. We provide temporary shelter and support services to 10 men and 10 women while helping them find other shelter or housing within 30 days.
|Operation First Step provides a safe place to stay and necessary services to help the newly homeless.
Often, those coming to Crossroads for help have never been homeless before. They have become homeless due to a variety of situations including bankruptcy, home foreclosures, job loss, catastrophic illness and domestic violence.
Crossroads will provide these men and women with intensive case management and help them move out of homelessness for good. In the majority of cases, once they become independent, they will never need our help again. This is our ultimate goal.
