Jonnycake Center of Westerly
The Jonnycake Center began in 1975 in the village of Bradford RI with the mission of helping those in the community. In 2007 the organization moved from its 2300 square foot building in Bradford to its current 8000 square foot location in Westerly’s North End. This move allowed them to expand their existing services and expand their mission to provide education programs for their clients.
The Jonnycake Center offers support programs in the form of social services, food pantry and education. Their staff is there to help clients navigate the various social service agencies, apply for assistance and provide educational and job training opportunities. All of these services are aimed to help the clients in crisis navigate a path to self sufficiency and success.
In addition to the direct assistance provided to clients, the Jonnycake Center also operates a thrift store that is open to the public to both shop and donate. The thrift store carries everything from books and toys, to clothing and housewares, as well as furniture. Not only can you shop for fantastic bargains on great merchandise, the Jonnycake Center offers a delivery service for large items you purchase! The thrift store is one unique aspect of the Jonnycake Center in that it helps to provide funding for the unglamorous needs of utilities, rent and payroll. This in turn ensures that the monetary donations our community members make go directly to funding the programs for the clients.
The Jonnycake Center is a vital organization to our community in the support it provides to our neighbors in crisis, as well as the fantastic opportunities it provides to all of us in the community.
