This project was a collaborative effort between Crossroads RI and Roger Williams University’s Community Partnership Center (CPC) and Gabelli School of Business. Crossroads RI established a need for guidance addressing the challenge of creating a job training and employment opportunity Social Enterprise for clients of Crossroads RI.


Crossroads Rhode Island provides their clients with a continuum of care that includes basic emergency needs, shelter, housing, case management and vocational services for individuals and families. In order to provide these services they rely on the generosity of their donors and supporters who have helped Crossroads to become the largest homeless services organization in Rhode Island. It is important to Crossroads that they stick to their core values of safety, respect, and effectiveness when helping the homeless or at-risk individuals and families secure stable homes.
