"There will never cease to be needy ones in your land; 
therefore I command you:
open your hand to the poor and needy kin in your land."

    Deuteronomy 15:11         
      Did you know that ...
      According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, in October, 2013, 
        the unemployment rate in Rhode Island was 9.2%, the 2nd highest in the nation
        (following only Nevada at 9.3%). This rate was down from the high point of 11.9%
        in February, 2010, but still much higher than the pre-recession rate of 5.2 % in
        November, 2007.
