Lucy’s Hearth serves homeless families with children through our emergency shelter program, transitional apartment program and permanent supportive apartment program. We primarily serve Newport County residents, but warmly welcome residents from other areas of the state when beds are available.
Shelter is Just the Beginning
During their involvement with Lucy’s Hearth, parents work toward their high school equivalency degrees, improve English language skills, learn job search and financial management skills and obtain employment. Their children attend school, receive assistance with homework, take field trips, and receive clothing and toys.
To provide comprehensive programs and services to homeless families in a safe, supportive environment that promotes family health and stability.
Over the course of a year, we serve in the range of 45 families with close to 80 children through our emergency shelter, transitional apartment and permanent apartment programs, for a total of nearly 14,000 shelter and transitional bed nights, with nearly 28,000 meals served.
In October 2016, we relocated to our new facility located at 19 Valley Road in Middletown.
Lucy’s Hearth was incorporated in 1984 and opened as an overnight shelter with one staff person and a dedicated group of volunteers. As need increased, we became a 24-hour shelter and expanded. More
