Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working to improve housing solutions in Wake County. We are working to help make the transition from homelessness to stable housing less of a financial burden by providing furniture and household supplies to families referred by case managers at local nonprofit housing nonprofits. We are helping to make the living conditions in homes for seniors citizens suffering from asthma better by providing free window a/c units to those referred by Wake County Human Services.
