When You Become a GEM, You Join a Very Special Group of Donors.

Our work at Meeting Street truly helps to level the playing field for children of all abilities. To do it, we need to hire and retain the best of the best. Specialized equipment and adaptive technologies are incredibly expensive. Reimbursements and government grants cover just a fraction of our costs. $.87 of every dollar we raise goes right back into our programs and services that directly impact the thousands of lives we touch and change every year in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

I became a GEM because I saw firsthand that Meeting Street changes lives, not just for kids but entire families. They are quite simply the best at what they do and I know the money goes where it’s meant to. Nothing is more important than insuring our children’s futures.

That’s why support from members of our GEM (Giving Every Month) program is so critical. Ensuring a continuous commitment of funds from caring members of our community ensures our programs can continue to run uninterrupted and allows us to plan for future growth to make sure all our children’s needs are met.
