Monthly CBO Spotlight: Amos House

  • 07 Dec 2023

Our primary care transformation efforts often include the support and partnership of community-based organizations (CBOs) statewide. CTC-RI is spotlighting a different CBO each month to recognize and appreciate their work in our communities. This month, we're spotlighting Amos House. Since 1976, Amos House has been a staple of the Rhode Island nonprofit community, serving the homeless, unemployed, and those who are living in poverty.


What ways does your organization uniquely support Rhode Islanders?

We provide a range of social and clinical services to Rhode Islanders. We currently operate 18 programs, including the financial opportunities center, soup kitchen, residential treatment, permanent supportive housing, family shelter, vocational training programs, computer literacy, benefits enrollment, rental assistance, behavioral health services, and more. 


How can a partnership with primary care providers strengthen your work?

Closer collaboration with primary care providers will help to improve coordination of care for our mutual guests/patients and improve the quality of wraparound services that we're able to provide.

What's something you'd like the primary care community to understand about your organization?

We employ a strengths-based model in caring for our guests.
