Grantmaking

We fund organizations and projects which disrupt our current behavioral health space and create impact at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.

Innovation Award

Our annual $25,000 prize is awarded to a cutting-edge idea that holds the potential to catalyze progress in behavioral health.

Community Fund for Wellness

Our participatory grantmaking alters the traditional process of philanthropic giving by empowering service providers and community-based organizations to define the strategy around a specific issue area or population.

Program Related Investments

We provide funds at below-market interest rates that can be particularly useful to start, grow, or sustain a program, or when results cannot be achieved with grant dollars alone.

Anchor Recovery Community Center

Innovation Award

The Anchor Recovery Community Centers are Rhode Island’s first and only community centers run by and dedicated to those living in recovery from substance use disorders.

About

Launched by The Providence Center in 2010, Anchor Recovery Community Centers focus on a peer-to-peer support model to help those living with substance use disorders maintain long-term recovery, improve social connectedness, improve self-sufficiency, and live healthier lives.  

By incorporating support and guidance from those with similar lived experiences and offering various different program options, Anchor encourages participants to succeed in their recovery in their own way.  The Anchor “family” of programs has grown and now includes two new program initiatives, AnchorED and Anchor MORE. These programs aim to engage high-risk, high-need individuals and connect them to appropriate services that will treat their addiction, support them in their recovery, and help them engage the healthcare system in productive ways.
