  • Mission:
  • Amos House provides support for men, women and children in Rhode Island who are hungry, homeless and in crisis through food, shelter and social service programs. Amos House provides the tools people need to attain greater sufficiency and self-reliance in their lives through a model of housing, social service case management, job training, and employment. Through this holistic approach to assisting people facing daily challenges and times of crisis, Amos House is able to meet the needs of many New England residents.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1976 as a small soup kitchen that served 20 homeless men dinner each night, Amos House now serves at least 800 hungry people free breakfast and lunch meals daily and is the largest soup kitchen in the state. Amos House provides a continuum of housing for homeless men, women and children from a 90-day Transitional Program to permanent supportive housing with a total of 140 beds. All of the housing is sober housing. Over 15,000 individuals visit Social Services each year for assistance with housing, emergency financial assistance, ID's and Birth Certificates, transportation, hygiene packets, and referrals for substance abuse treatment and employment. Although originally founded to serve homeless individuals, over the years we have become a life-line for many poor men, women and children struggling to stay afloat.
