Mission: HousingWorks RI is an authoritative source of information about housing in Rhode Island. We conduct research and analyze data to inform public policy. We develop communications strategies and promote dialogue about the relationship between housing and the state’s economic future.
Vision: HousingWorks RI envisions a Rhode Island in which communities embrace a variety of housing choices so that residents, regardless of income, can live in healthy, quality homes in vibrant and thriving neighborhoods.
HousingWorks RI and Roger Williams University
In 2013, Roger Williams University announced its intentions to integrate HousingWorks RI as a program of the Division of University Outreach & Engagement. Roger Williams University has long valued a campus-wide commitment to the greater community. As part of Roger Williams University, HousingWorks RI acts as a bridge for the University and provides a “think and do” laboratory that faculty, students, and staff can leverage to better all of Rhode Island.
HousingWorks RI regularly takes on student interns from various disciplines within the University and acts as a resource for external partners.
