Introducing The HOME Project
The increasing challenge of finding and keeping affordable housing here in Wake County is an issue for many of those who are served by Western Wake Crisis Ministry and it’s a conversation we are called to join. As the world around us changes, our organization is also changing to meet the needs of our neighbors in ways that help provide more sustainable solutions.
To that end, we are pleased to announce The HOME Project. This pilot program is partially funded through a grant from Publix Supermarket Charities and is designed to help families at risk of becoming homeless.
Annika Spivey, Client Advocate for WWCM, explains. “The HOME Project is a relationship-based initiative. We’ll be working as a team with those who are a good fit for this program, creating a plan to stabilize their housing situation and home finances. This includes direct financial assistance as well coaching from WWCM and coordinating services with other community agencies. We’re making the commitment to work with people long-term and to help build their support network.”
The HOME Project will serve individuals and families in the Apex, New Hill, Friendship and Holly Springs areas. WWCM volunteers will be able to contribute as team members.
“The number of people who came in contact with homeless services in Wake County increased by 31% since 2015,” says Spivey, “and Apex is no exception. We’re excited to add this new dimension to the way Western Wake Crisis ministry serves our community.”
