The Rhode Island Spotlight
What started out as a soup kitchen and emergency shelter in the heart of Westerly nearly three decades ago has evolved into a comprehensive non-profit social service organization that this year will serve more than 2,300 people. The WARM Center has expanded to serve not only those in Westerly, but also surrounding communities in Rhode Island and nearby Connecticut. In this August 2016 video, Rhode Island Spotlight host Jim Hummel sits down with Russ Partridge, WARM’s executive director, and two people who say WARM saved their lives – literally.
