We invite you to create a Welcome Home Basket for families moving into permanent housing.  With the help of Crossroads RI, local families are given a laundry basket filled with essentials to get them settled.  This list contains suggestions though you may have your own ideas!

Welcome Home Baskets: (printable copy)
