Upcoming Events at Connecting for Children & Families


Please Join Us for CCF's Vision of Hope - Tuesday, October 30



Vision of Hope is the ideal we strive to provide for our Northern Rhode Island families who face a wide range of challenges. Join us as we celebrate our community working together to transform lives.

This event will highlight Connecting for Children and Families (CCF) work as a leader in family support services for Northern Rhode Island and showcase the current range of high quality education and family programs working to transform the lives of Woonsocket children.

John C. Gregory, President and CEO of Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce, will join CCF as the events honorary chair, and a keynote address will be given by Senator Jack Reed.

In true celebratory fashion, we will be honoring Tony Maione, President and CEO of United Way of Rhode Island, with the CCF designated Visionary Award for his dedicated efforts in engaging the Rhode Island community to address critical community needs.

Proceeds will support CCF as we help children get the start they deserve through proven early childhood programs, ensuring they continue to succeed all the way through high school graduation, and connecting families with educational support services to ensure children have a safe, nurturing environment to thrive in.
