Our Empowerment Centers

Through a committed group of volunteers We Share Hope is proud to offer the following: The Joseph W. Martin Market (Warren), Riverside Congregational Church (Riverside) and The General Store (Warwick)  These locations provide a weekly market open to the public. It is an opportunity for people to help themselves financially while paying it forward to help others. A small donation for the products being offered help bring more products to the shelves.  

The items available are rescued and donated items that still have dignity for those receiving. Through the recipient’s small donation, We Share Hope is able to pay for transportation, warehouse and other logistical transport costs.

By shifting the entitlement to empowerment, we help people transform their lives.

We Share Hope has not only helped my immediate family but also helps me help other family members. The fact I can get toiletries, over the counter supplies, and food staples there for a small donation is a blessing during hard financial times.

What happens with your $3 and $5 donations?

We Share Hope pays for the following:

  • Our fleet of trucks and vans

  • Insurance policies

  • Fuel

  • Our Warehouse

  • Freezers and refrigerators to store the food

  • Utilities to make operations run

By donating to We Share Hope, you become part of the solution in helping yourself. We are so happy you have chosen to be a part of what we do!

I am so thankful to God for We Share Hope empowerment centers for many reasons:

1. The products and meats I get are excellent and helps me to save money from my food budget.

2. The money I save can then be used to buy food there for my adult children’s families.

3. I also can get food for food drives in my own community.

4. I have told all my friends about We Share Hope, so they can share with their friends.. we have so many R.I.’s in need.  

Thank God for this program that is available to all.
