Letter from the Chair of our Board of Directors 

Dear Family and Friends of AccessPoint RI,

As you may be aware, Tom Kane, President and CEO, notified us in August of his intention to retire from AccessPoint RI.  While I was very sad “for us”, I was happy for Tom, because I don’t know anyone who has the level of commitment to human rights and dignity that spans close to 50 years.  Tom has tirelessly and commendably served at AccessPoint RI, as CEO, for over twenty years.  In addition, Tom’s work outside AccessPoint RI, thrice-elected leader of the Community Provider Network of Rhode Island and honored in 2005 by its members for his contributions, demonstrates Tom’s willingness to lead, at every level, his lifelong mission for social justice and human rights.  As a board, we will have some big shoes to fill as we execute the executive search for Tom’s replacement.  Read More
