FOOD/hot meals

 

In our fight against hunger and food insecurity, we provide thousands of meals annually through a great team of volunteers in four primary communities: Woonsocket, Pawtucket, Providence, and West Warwick.  We serve healthy fresh meals to those in need.  We go beyond handing out care packages by serving hot meals to the homeless. 

At our weekly food services, our volunteers provide a valuable human interaction and guidance to available programs to those in need.  In addition, we may deliver food to those who cannot reach our food distribution locations.

housing

 

Mae’s housing program was established to empower the homeless population to escape the cycle of poverty.  Our program has helped hundreds of families get established into a new home by giving them items including bed, kitchen tables, etc. 

Mae’s housing program helps families in need of establishing long-term residency by not only providing furniture, but also assisting with first month’s rent and deposit. 

We also house the homeless at motels during emergency situations and when shelter space is not available.

clothing & toiletries 

Mae provides quality clothing, accessories, and shoe items at no cost to the homeless and low-income households.  We accept personal donations of gently used items and make these available at our weekly food service locations.  In addition, Mae purchases or accepts donations of toiletry items e.g., shampoo, toilet paper, and soap and makes these items available during our weekly food services.

Our program was also established to empower the homeless to overcome the impact of trauma and promote personal growth.  We will dress them for success when searching for employment.

expressive arts

Therapy through expressive arts such as drama can assist individuals with mental illness and emotional distress.  Our activities will be held to reflect the inner state of the client.  Our approach is to provide activities to accommodate each unique individual we serve through the arts.  Some of the art  programs under development are: music, movement, drama, horticulture, culinary, journaling, mindfulness, farm animal therapy equine therapy, and prayer therapy.
