Homeless in RI: No safety, peace, order for DaVinci Center; Dignity arrives for some; camping protest
A press conference will be held Wednesday afternoon to greet the first Dignity Bus to ever come to Rhode Island to help with the homeless issue for the city of Woonsocket. Purchased by Woonsocket from The Source, in Florida, the bus took 2-3 days to make the trip to deliver the custom, retro-fitted bus, which sleeps 20+, with staff. Approximately 4 staff members from The Source have come along to instruct Woonsocket staff on how to operate the bus and will stay for an undetermined time to offer training.
The Dignity Bus will be run by Community Care Alliance.
