PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Advocates are announcing a new project to provide permanent supportive homes for victims of domestic violence.

The Smith Hill Community Development Corporation received grant money to purchase a building in Providence and renovate three apartments, which will be designated for families at the Sojourner House. The house is a social service agency that works with victims of domestic violence, and will provide services to the apartment residents.

Sojourner House and Smith Hill Community Development Corporation, along with Rhode Island Housing and their community partners, will gather Friday in Providence to celebrate the start of the project and unveil the plans.

The Sojourner House hopes the first families can move in during the spring or summer of 2015.
