Defining the Need

While Apex has been named one of the best places to live, we are not immune to the struggles of food and housing insecurity, even homelessness. And, these vulnerabilities are even more prevalent across the rural areas that we serve in Western and Southwestern Wake County:

  • The costs of housing in Western Wake County is the most expensive in the region, especially rental costs.
  • The rate of seniors who face financial hardships while living on a limited income in Apex is double that which is seen across the rest of Wake County.
  • Over 3000 students qualify for free and reduced lunches in Apex based schools, and 53% of Apex schools have 20% or more of the student base qualifying for free and reduced lunch.
