About logo


The Newport Partnership for Families is about people working together to promote the health and well-being of everyone in Newport County.

It’s one stop for finding services, and for working together to tackle big challenges. The Partnership serves residents, the social service community, and social change-makers.

Connect People and Services

We help people of all ages and needs find the services and volunteer opportunities that they are looking for.


Solve Social Challenges

We are a cooperative organization. We collaborate on challenges that affect all of us, like substance abuse and school absenteeism, and work together to address them.

Convene Social Impact Leaders

We create a place where diverse community residents, social service agencies, government and funders can work together to improve the quality of life in Newport County.

Share Best Practices

Our model of collective impact, provides an infrastructure, staff, and resources that accelerate the results that come from people working together for the well-being of an entire community.
