Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation Donates More Than $412,000

to 15 Organizations Throughout Rhode Island and Connecticut

(West Warwick, R.I.) November 15, 2022 – Harold M. Horvat, Centreville Bank president, CEO and chairman, today announced that the Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation has awarded $412,400 in funding to 15 organizations throughout Rhode Island and Connecticut. The grants are part of the Foundation’s quarterly donation cycle. These third quarter cycle grants focus on the Foundation’s three priorities: education success, economic security and capacity building.

Among the grant recipients, Crossroads Rhode Island (Providence, R.I.) was awarded $100,000 to support its “Roads to Home” initiative and philanthropic campaign to significantly reduce homelessness in Rhode Island by creating 300 permanent supporting housing apartments in Providence. 

“At Crossroads, we believe everyone needs a place to call home,” said Karen Santilli, CEO, Crossroads Rhode Island. “That is why we are so grateful to partner with Rhode Island leaders and businesses, such as Centreville Bank and the Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation. Together we can continue to serve and support some of our most vulnerable populations.”

The Day Kimball Healthcare Foundation (Putnam, Conn.) was awarded $50,000 to support the expansion of Day Kimball Healthcare’s child-adolescent behavioral health services.

“DKH is so proud to be the recipient of this wonderful and truly generous donation from the Centreville Charitable Foundation in support of expanding our behavioral health services for children, teens and their families in our community,” said Kyle Kramer, chief executive officer, Day Kimball Healthcare. “The need to support mental health services is greater than ever, and this donation will enable DKH to continue to provide critical behavioral health services for our area’s youth. Undoubtedly, these funds will make a significant difference in the lives of countless families across Northeast Connecticut, and we’re so grateful to have support from community partners like Centreville Bank.”

Additionally, Kent Hospital (Warwick, R.I.) was awarded $100,000 to be used towards the creation of its ACE (Acute Care for Elders) Community Room. The new space will serve as a critically needed hub for patient socialization, family-care team meetings, and group physical therapy. It will ensure patients, their families and doctors have a comfortable environment to ask questions and collaborate on their transition home.

“I am grateful for the long-standing partnership Kent has with Centreville Bank,” said Paari Gopalakrishnan, MD, MBA, Kent Hospital President and COO. “This generous grant will allow us to build our Community Room within the Acute Care for Elders Unit – a unique space in Kent Hospital dedicated to Age-Friendly healthcare. On behalf of our providers and the many families who trust their older members to our care, thank you for this support.”
