Community Works Rhode Island

Community Works Rhode Island (CWRI) was formed through the merger of Elmwood Foundation and the Greater Elmwood Neighborhood Services, which served Rhode Island residents for over 30 years, creating 1,000 housing units, and investing over $60 million in the local community. CWRI works to create opportunities within surrounding neighborhoods for residents to live in affordable homes, increase their quality of life, and improve the conditions of their communities.  Each year over 300 families receive assistance through their bi-lingual homeownership training, foreclosure counseling, and financial literacy classes.  They are currently constructing 26 new rental units and renovating 21 other units, which will result in multiple urban mansions being converted into 90 mixed income rental and ownership units.
