PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Homeless advocates are calling on Gov. Dan McKee to find a place to build deployable shelters in Rhode Island.

On Monday, advocates built a deployable shelter in front of the State House on Smith Street.

 

In June, McKee signed the state budget, which allocated $20 million to assist individuals and families experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
