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 Corrections, 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.
