Who are we?

Americans Helping Others ProspEr (AHOPE) is a volunteer based, 501c3, nonprofit organization that was established to assist needy individuals and families in Rhode Island requiring help to transition to permanent housing. Primarily, our work has focused on assisting new refugees coming to Rhode Island with little to their name. We are dedicated to helping families integrate into American society. AHOPE is an entirely volunteer based organization. Our members range from students to professionals, all dedicated to helping develop prosperous Rhode Island communities.

What do we do?

While our initial focus was on assisting refugee families coming in to Rhode Island, as our name states, we have to expand our organizational efforts to help ALL those in need in the greater Rhode Island community.  We work with our collaborators to furnish homes for families who are ready to transition to permanent housing.
We also serve “Meals of Hope” every Tuesday at 6pm in Cathedral Square, in downtown Providence.
