2019 proved to be another great year for Westbay Community Action. We continue to celebrate the positive, sustainable outcomes in which we strive to empower the families of Kent County. Westbay remains a leader in Rhode Island and is an agency that assists individuals and families with achieving economic self-sufficiency.
For more than 50 years, Westbay has been committed to helping the local community become stronger. The mission of Westbay Community Action, Inc. is to empower and mobilize people through our programs, partnerships and advocacy to gain greater self-sufficiency.
Westbay Community Action would like to thank all of our staff, volunteers, board members, funders and state and local legislatures that have supported us over the past 53 years and for those that continue to support and believe in what we do. Westbay will continue to be the Safety Net for the residents of Kent County and beyond.
During 2018-2019, Westbay began three new programs: Can O’ Peas, home delivered food from our Marketplace to homebound and disabled elders; West Warwick High School Social Worker, working with the High School and those students the school identifies as “At Risk;” and case management services for Grandparents serving as caregivers for their grandchildren.
As we forge ahead to 2019-2020, Westbay will be looking at increasing capacity for individuals and families in areas of education, workforce development, health and nutrition. Westbay will also be looking to move its programs and services into one central location providing one point of access to our programs.
