Diana Freeman, a petite blonde woman with compassion bigger than she is, came into the shelter system in November of 2009.
Attending a speak out began her involvement with RIHAP Speakers Bureau-Voices of the Homeless, while she was vice chair and Secretary.
She is active with the winter shelter service at Mathewson Church 2009-2010 season.
Diana has been working since March 2010 to facilitate a respite care facility.
Storming the State House to replace NOP funding and Hate Crimes against the homeless, both actions were successful.
You may have seen her on TV as part of the Nothing Campaign for the food bank of RI. You might see her around registering people to vote.
Her speaking engagements are to students, facility, professional people and religious groups, while she does outreach and advocacy with her peers.
In the immediate future she hopes to offer ballroom dance classes to anyone on Street Sights, RICH and Speaker Bureau, as a thank you for allowing her to be part of all they do.
But we want to thank her for being and doing everything she does. You are a light in the dark.
