About the Partnership

For over 20 years, South County Habitat has partnered with URI to address the need in our area for affordable housing, but in 2009, an expanded campus wide partnership was launched to complete a 4 house development on Old North Road near the Emporium. By the fall 2015, URI students, faculty and administration raised over $365,131 for the Old North Neighborhood as well as multiple other projects. Since 2009, 4 homes have been dedicated in Kingston, with 1 additional home in Exeter to be dedicated December 2015.

The relationship between the University of Rhode Island and South County Habitat for Humanity is a powerful partnership that enriches both organizations while helping to overcome the burdens of poverty housing in the community and around the world.” – Lou Raymond, Exec. Director, SC Habitat for Humanity

The URI Building Homes Partnership Committee organizes fundraising, awareness, and direct service events throughout the year utilizing volunteers from across the URI campus community.

Current Projects:

  • 2 new homes in Exeter
