Housing Opportunities for People Everywhere (HOPE)

Housing Opportunities for People Everywhere (HOPE) provides a structured opportunity for students to work with homeless populations and to engage in related advocacy efforts. In HOPE, Brown students provide direct service at meal sites, shelters, and foster homes. They also assist with nighttime outreach and with the production of Street Sights, Rhode Island's homeless community newspaper. Finally, students collaborate with community leaders of the Rhode Island Homeless Advocacy Project and the Rhode Island Coalition on legislative efforts such as the Homeless Bill of Rights. At all levels of work - from direct service to community organizing and legislative advocacy - HOPE works to end homelessness in Rhode Island.
