Defining the Need
Children, families, and the elderly in Western Wake County are often forgotten. The area includes some of the most expensive housing costs and the elderly population is one of the highest in the state. Food insecurity, homelessness, and lack of access to affordable health care place thousands of our neighbors at risk.

The HOME Project
Homelessness is on the rise in Wake County. The number of people who came in contact with homeless services increased by 31% from 2015-2017. This new program is designed to help families and individuals within the Apex, New Hill, Friendship or Holly Springs area, who are at risk of homelessness.
