Everyone experiences tough times. Having help when you need it is the key to facing these challenges. Community Care Alliance strives to empower people experiencing economic insecurity, mental illness and addiction, housing issues, and trauma-related concerns. It's hard to think about people in dire straits, but everyone can agree that when people have dignity and are empowered, our community thrives.
Community Care Alliance operates over 50 programs, providing a comprehensive array of family-centered services at various locations, predominantly in northern Rhode Island. These might include basic needs assistance to address emergencies— counseling, treatment, support services and residential programs for individuals and families impacted by serious mental illness and addiction— emergency and supportive housing to prevent homelessness and promote stabilization— alternative education and services for families with young children and adolescents— and employment, financial literacy and vocational training to improve self-sufficiency. For example, we help put food on the table, keep lights on, pay an emergency bill, improve employment outcomes, ensure an adolescent's well-being, recover someone's behavioral health, provide safe, sober spaces for socializing, build parenting skills... and more.
We support a culture of collaboration and communication, and our teams work together to provide the most accessible and appropriate care. We do this through outcome-driven, innovative programming and collaborative partnerships between programs and with other organizations.

Our Greatest Asset
Our employees are the best in their field, dedicated to strengthening individuals, families and the broader community. We know that without them we would not be able to bring the high quality of care that we bring to our clients. That is why we support them to balance work and personal needs.
We Are a Recovery Friendly Workplace
At Community Care Alliance, we believe that recovery is possible, allowing people to thrive and live their lives to the fullest extent. People are not defined solely by their recovery, and employment is an important way that people create meaning. Since the very beginning, we have hired people in recovery and will continue to do so as people in recovery enrich the work that we do. Everyone’s life experiences contribute to a richness in the quality of care that we provide to this community.
We hire people in recovery– not just as peers but in all areas of the agency! We create policies and procedures that support them. We’ re here to help. We connect to resources when help is needed. We don’t judge. We accept people for who they are.
