A Room Packed with Believers



We hosted our fifth-annual Believe Breakfast at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet on Dec 7, and nearly 400 friends and supporters came to celebrate with us!

We thank our student speaker, Jaelah Lopes from Cranston High School East (above), and our keynote speaker, Deborah Santiago from Excelencia in Education (at left), for inspiring and challenging us. We congratulate honorees Paul Moran and Simon Moore, recipients of the 2017 Dr. Americo W. Petrocelli Distinguished Service Award, and Rep.
