PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A nonprofit agency that works with the homeless and those who have struggled with substance abuse has officially kicked off a project to build a $6 million community center in South Providence.

Amos House held a groundbreaking on Monday for the 29,000-square-foot building, which will house a dining hall, classrooms, community rooms, training centers and offices.

President and CEO Eileen Hayes says the group has outgrown its headquarters, which currently hosts programs including a soup kitchen that serves 800 meals a day.

The group helps around 15,000 people per year. It also provides transitional and permanent supportive housing, runs job training and literacy programs and offers other social services.
