1 in 3 Rhode Islanders can’t afford rent and 1,318 people are unhoused. If we don’t stand up to greedy developers and politicians, who will?

Every fall and early winter, DARE Board members, leaders, staff and volunteers organize to provide food baskets to low-income families living in Providence’s communities of color, as well as a toy distribution for families in our community. DARE’s generous donors, sustainers, funders, and local businesses contribute in-kind and with dollars to ensure low-income families have food, gifts, and joy for the holidays.

Thanks to our 2021 holiday supporters: the Law Office of Rob Russo, the Law office of David Cicilline, the Law Office of Rob Levine, the City of Providence, Gonzalo Cuervo, Councilor Rachel Miller, DARE’s Monthly Sustainers, & our individual holiday sponsors.


The DARE Leadership Institute (DLI) is our new member training in organizing skills (public speaking, door-knocking and outreach, direct action & the legislative process), and political education workshops (e.g. capitalism, institutional racism, and the commonalities and difference between the histories of communities of color/oppressed nationalities). DLI graduates are integrated into campaign work to put their new skills into action. We graduate 15-20 DLI leaders annually.
