The Blessing Way is a faith-based agency which provides spiritual and social support for men and women who are returning to the Providence area from prison or drug treatment. We offer holistic, wrap-around personalized guidance and support to those who have demonstrated a commitment to recovery, personal change, and social responsibility.
The Blessing Way was formed in 2004 under the direction of Rev. Dr. Joyce Penfield, a Chaplain at the Rhode Island Department of Correction, as an ecumenical effort to offer a spiritually-oriented response to the high rate of return to prison and death by overdose among formerly incarcerated men and women. We are a fast-paced and fast growing agency which has developed steady social service programming that deals with the whole person.
