A new outreach program kicked off in Providence Friday night.
Organizers were giving out food, clothing and toiletries in Cathedral Square.
The program is run in part by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, with help from Breadlines and other area programs.
Organizers are calling it Cathedral Square Ministries and they plan to be there with a similar event every Friday evening to help the needy.
"We get a sense of goodness with helping these people. We listen to their stories. They like to tell us what brought them here. Some are homeless. Some are not homeless. Some have apartments, but they don't have the funding for the food and the clothing," Anne Pari said.
Anyone attending can also learn about different assistance programs in the area.
