Crossroads owns and operates hundreds of permanent supportive housing units for individuals and families throughout Rhode Island.
Housing Ends Homelessness
At Crossroads, we believe housing is the only true solution to homelessness. As such, we utilize a Housing First model, in which the most vulnerable families and individuals experiencing homelessness are provided safe, respectful and effective housing first, along with access to additional supportive services to help them achieve long-term success. Although not all of our clients ultimately enter Crossroads Housing, operating these units is a direct way to help end homelessness for the people we serve.
Our Housing Options
We work one-on-one with all of our clients to determine how to help them secure a stable home. Because the needs of each household are unique, we offer a variety of housing options for individuals and families.
The Harold Lewis House
Opened in 2006 specifically to house men and women ages 50 and older, the Harold Lewis House was named after a homeless veteran who spent most of his nights sleeping in shelter. After he eventually passed away in shelter, Harold Lewis House was dedicated to him with the belief that no one should ever die without a home.
To be eligible for this program you must be 50 years of age or older, disabled, and homeless.
