Group Workcamp Moonsocket, Rhode Island

The Blackstone River Valley has a long history in the world of manufacturing and commerce.

By the mid-1800s, Woonsocket was one of the largest textile manufacturing centers in the United States, but it did not escape the Great Depression. Industry was a draw for immigrants seeking to establish a better life for themselves. French Canadians first arrived in the 1840’s, followed by African American immigrants who began to arrive as a part of the Great Migration. Since the 1980s, many Southeast Asian, Latinos, and African immigrants have been calling Woonsocket home.

City revitalization began in the 1990s and has continued into the 21st century, including housing renovation projects as well as focused improvements to the greater community.

Help the residents of Woonsocket realize this future and bring the vision to reality as you become part of a greater purpose through home repairs for the people of the Blackstone Valley.

For ages 14+


Participants will stay in a facility that is partially air-conditioned so you’ll want to bring some fans. The lodging facility has 6 indoor, open, showers for females. We are building outdoor showers for males with individual stalls. If you’re worried about modesty, bring those swimsuits! Guys will definitely want to bring shower shoes. Everyone will be sleeping on floors, gender separate, so bring your air mattresses!
