PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Crossroads Rhode Island’s 13th Annual Women Helping Women fundraiser was held virtually this year.
The event Thursday evening brought together hundreds of women to celebrate and support those participating in Crossroads’ programs and services. It was hosted by Eyewitness News anchor Danielle North.
The money raised will fund the organization’s mission to help women secure safe and stable homes, which Crossroads says is more vital than ever during the COVID-19 crisis.
Last year, the organization served more than 1,000 women through its emergency shelter as well as with domestic violence support, education and employment services. Crossroads said its domestic violence program has seen a 30% increase in calls since the pandemic began.
WPRI 12 and Fox Providence are proud supporters of this event.
