we still need your help

this is a community effort

Even as much good as we’ve done – the 2020 pandemic made an even larger impact on our community than anyone could have expected. We need your help now more than ever.

Wake County has seen a 68% increase in homeless individuals since 2021, and a 99.5% increase since 2020.

The number of people without shelter has doubled in 2 years.

We know things will be harder moving forward, but we will continue to serve the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area to the best of our abilities and provide for as many individuals as our mission can handle.
