What We Do

The Papitto Opportunity Connection supports job-skills programs that are designed to boost the employability and earnings of BIPOC individuals in Rhode Island.
To meet the demands of today’s workforce these programs provide the post-secondary credentials, credits and certificates job seekers need for high-paying jobs in healthcare, IT, the building trades and more.
Justice-involved members of the BIPOC community who are seeking a pathway to success are often denied access to good paying jobs because they have previously made mistakes. POC is working to change that narrative by supporting innovative and unique programs that provide skills training and offer pathways for people to build healthier lives for themselves and their families.
For more than 40 years, Justice Assistance, a community-based treatment facility in Cranston, has provided recovery and rehabilitation services for offenders and victims of crime.See More
