WARM offers case management to families and individuals in southern Rhode Island who are in crisis. They receive guidance in accessing needed services, or funds, for their particular situation, such as assistance with rents, utilities, or prescription costs. Families are provided with information on local food pantries, vouchers for non-food items and referrals to other agencies.
The Basic Needs Network is a collaborative of South County social service providers,churches and non-profits that meet to share resources, identify unmet needs and work toward ensuring food, shelter and health care for all individuals.
