Welcome to Beautiful Day Rhode Island—a Providence-based non-profit organization specializing in mobilizing employment for refugees and other low-income, underserved populations through business innovation. As victims of military, religious, and ethnic persecution who find themselves suddenly transplanted into a competitive urban landscape, refugees face remarkable cultural and social barriers with few resources to stabilize economically.
Beautiful Day Rhode Island is growing the Providence Granola Project and developing a strategy to replicate it nationally. In the very near future, we hope to construct a mixed-use kitchen facility to expand production and offer business incubation for refugee-owned food start-ups.
We believe in empowering people whose lives have been shattered to move forward a day at a time, that’s why we’re calling ourselves Beautiful Day.
