Westerly Area Rest Meals (WARM) Inc. was incorporated on December 15, 1987, to provide shelter and meals to the homeless throughout southern Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut. In conjunction with seven local churches, the shelter and soup kitchen were kept open seven days a week from November to March.

The shelter and the soup kitchen rotated nightly between the following locations:

Sundays: Pawcatuck Seventh Day Baptist Church
Mondays: St. Pius X Church
Tuesdays: Christ Episcopal Church
Wednesdays: St. Michael’s Church
Thursdays: Immaculate Conception Church
Fridays: Pleasant Street Baptist Church
Saturdays: Central Baptist Church

Many of the original churches are still involved with WARM today, providing volunteers, meals, and shoulder when needed. Their collective mission statement at inception was; “Westerly Area Rest/Meals Shelter, Inc. offers each guest three basic expressions of hospitality: a warm meal, a warm bed and a warm welcome as well as related social services and advocacy.”
