The Children’s Shelter of Blackstone Valley is a private nonprofit agency founded in 1979 to:
- serve the children of the state of Rhode Island who are the victims of abuse and neglect.
- provide an emergency residential crisis and assessment center with a safe, therapeutic environment for boys and girls.
- act as advocates and representatives for all abused, neglected and abandoned children.
The boys and girls who need our care are as young as a few weeks old up to twelve years of age. All of them have experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse and have been traumatized by their tragic experiences. We provide a warm, sunny environment with trained staff to deliver the best quality care for these young children while they struggle with their pain and uncertainty. We have provided these services for over thirty years and are dedicated to continuing to care for every child who needs us.
