Corporate Partner Spotlight: Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island

We are proud to highlight Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) as one of our corporate partners.

The work that we do at Crossroads Rhode Island would not be possible without the support of our many corporate sponsors and partners who generously donate their time, talents, and financial support to our efforts of ending homelessness for individuals and families in Rhode Island. We are proud to highlight Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) as one of our corporate partners.

Recently, Crossroads in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Providence was awarded a 2016 Transitional Grant as part of the BlueAngel Community Health Grant Awards. This funding allows us to provide nutrition and fitness education to parents and children in our family programs. Through their BlueAngel Community Health Grant Awards, BCBSRI has given more than $3 million to dozens on local agencies like Crossroads, and helped more than 257,000 Rhode Islanders.

BCBSRI has also been a generous supporter of our two signature events, Women Helping Women and Men on a Mission. Both events raise critical funds to support the work that we do, and increase awareness of homelessness in our community.

Additional annual support from BCBSRI helps us provide adult wellness programs to vulnerable and marginalized people staying in our shelters or living in in-site permanent supportive housing. These health and wellness activities include HIV, blood pressure, and cancer screenings, smoking cessation assistance, support groups, nutrition education, exercise classes, and more.

In addition to their generous funding, BCBSRI employees are generous with their time. Last year, they hosted a holiday party for some of our clients who are on their way to becoming permanently housed.

Last summer, BCBSRI hosted a Family Fun Day at our Kingstown Crossings housing location. The families there enjoyed face painting, outdoor games, a water slide, and arts and crafts, all staffed by BCBSRI volunteers and at no cost to Crossroads Rhode Island.

Thank you to our friends at BCBSRI for all that you do to support Crossroads Rhode Island's mission, bring a smile to the faces of the people we serve, and help our clients lead healthier lives!
