  2. In my one and only time I was homeless, I stayed here. And let me tell you, this is the best mens/womens shelter in RI. You get a hot meal, a hot shower, and a place to sleep for the night. But the best part, you get the Word of God every night. If I ever became homeless again due to circumstance, this would be the place I would go.
