Crossroads Cuts Ribbon on Whitmarsh House, Releases Youth Homelessness Report

On November 21st, Crossroads Rhode Island held a ribbon cutting event at Whitmarsh House, a new affordable housing development in Providence with some units set aside specifically for 18-24 year old homeless youths. 

On November 21st, Crossroads was joined by local leaders and community members as we celebrated the opening of the newly renovated Whitmarsh House Apartments in Providence!

Whitmarsh House will be operated by Crossroads. The new permanent supportive housing facility will serve chronic homeless individuals and youth ages 18-24.

Thank you to Senator Jack Reed, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Congressman David Cicilline, General Treasurer Seth Magaziner, Mayor Jorge Elorza, Barbara Fields, Brother John McHale, and our friends and supporters for joining us for this exciting occasion!

In conjunction with the opening of Whitmarsh House, we released our annual Special Report. Each year, Crossroads produces a report focusing on one population or aspect of homelessness in order to bring awareness to that particular issue.

This year, our report focuses on Youth Homelessless. Specifically, we examine the population of unaccompanied homeless youth ages 18-24. This is a population that is often unseen, but has been growing in recent years.
