East Bay Community Action Program Celebrates 56 Years of Community Action


(East Providence, RI, May 3, 2022) – May 2022 marks the 58th year since the Community Action Network was established to help American families and communities overcome obstacles to poverty. Over 1000 agencies across the country are working every day to create opportunities that empower individuals to thrive and build a better life for themselves and their families. This year, East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP), a proud member of the Community Action Network, commemorates 56 years of providing hope and stability to families in communities throughout the east bay.

“Each May, during Community Action Month, we reflect on the impact EBCAP and our community partners have had on those we serve,” stated Dennis Roy, EBCAP President and CEO. “Last year alone, we served more than 30,000 individuals in all 10 East Bay communities providing them with vital medical, dental, behavioral health, social support, and family support services.”

In recognition of CAP Month 2022, EBCAP is pleased to join our fellow CAP agencies, both here in Rhode Island and nationwide, in celebrating the power of our collective efforts to empower individuals to live to their fullest potential. We encourage the entire East Bay community to join us in recognizing the achievements of those we serve as well as the extraordinary contributions of those dedicated to fulfilling the CAP promise to change lives, provide hope, improve communities, and make America a better place to live.

East Bay Community Action Program is a private, non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation that provides a wide array of health and human services to the residents of Rhode Island’s East Bay, including the municipalities of East Providence, Barrington, Warren, Bristol, Little Compton, Tiverton, Portsmouth, Middletown, Newport, and Jamestown.
