Tap-in is an all-volunteer agency

Touch A Person In Need



Tap-In was founded in 1983 by a group of six women to provide referrals and information to people in the East Bay. Now, we also provide them food, clothes, furniture, and transport to medical appointments. 



Our mission: Is to improve the quality of life for residents of Rhode Island's East Bay by providing resources to address food insecurity and economic hardship


Tap-in provides direct assistance to residents of Barrington, Bristol, East Providence and Warren.
