A note from our President/CEO

Paul Salera2017 proved to be a great year for Westbay Community Action. We continue to celebrate the positive, sustainable outcomes in which we strive to empower the families of Kent County.  Westbay remains a leader in Rhode Island and is an agency that assists individuals and families with achieving economic self-sufficiency.

For more than 50 years, Westbay has been committed to helping the local community become stronger.  While Westbay is eager to adapt to meet the changing needs of the community, our mission remains the same…

The mission of Westbay Community Action, Inc. is to assist economically disadvantaged individuals and families achieve and sustain self-sufficiency.

Westbay Community Action would like to thank all of our staff, volunteers, board members, funders and state and local legislatures that have supported us over the past 51 years and for those that continue to support and believe in what we do. Westbay will continue to be the Safety Net for the residents of Kent County and beyond.

During 2017, Westbay had a logo change, updated technology infrastructure to include new internet based phone system, successfully completed our 3 year Strategic Plan and fundraised more funds than we have had in a recent history.

As we look ahead to 2018, Westbay will be looking at increasing capacity for individuals and families in areas of education, workforce development, health and nutrition.  Westbay will also be completing a new Strategic Plan that will help guide us the next 5 years as we continue to serve the residents of Kent County.
