Community Action Programs (CAP)

In addition to the agencies who offer support for those reentering into the community, many Rhode Island communities have Community Action Programs (CAP) that offer a variety of services for low income individuals. Depending on the specific agency, services might include: adult education and training, heating assistance, food pantries, financial education classes, parent education classes, assistance with income tax preparation, and services for seniors among others.

Here is a list of CAP agencies in Rhode Island. Contact your local CAP agency for the services they provide.
