How We Started
In 1894, we were founded as Travelers Aid of Rhode Island. The goal was to assist people who came to Providence in search of work, many of whom were young women. Since then, we have evolved to meet the needs of the most vulnerable people in our state.
In 2004, in order to reflect all the changes that we had made, we changed our name to Crossroads Rhode Island and moved from downtown Providence into the former YMCA building at 160 Broad Street.
