Child & Family Commences 150th Anniversary Celebration

With the help of community partners like you we can continue our legacy of providing a center for community involvement – a place where people across a lifespan come together to give help, to receive help and to support the work of others.

On behalf of the staff, the board of directors and the wonderful 150th Anniversary Host Committee, we hope you will be part of the year-long festivities commemorating our legacy of strengthening the fabric of family and providing the best care, support, and state-of-the-art facilities for children, teens, families and elders here in Rhode Island for 150 years and beyond.

Thank you,

Lyn Dawley                                                                 Marty Sinnott
