Amos House

At Amos House, community is the foundation of who we are and how we serve. From our humble beginnings in 1976 as a small soup kitchen, to today's place as a leading agency in the Rhode Island nonprofit community, we have always been here to serve those who need us.

Our Mission

Helping people help themselves out of oppression, homelessness, and poverty through vital services and results-oriented programs.

Our Guiding Principles

  • All people are to be treated with dignity and respect
  • People have the inherent ability to succeed
  • The causes of poverty are complex and require innovative responses
  • Community is the foundation of our work
  • We all grow when we work together

Amos House's Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism
