It is our vision to have a healthy, hunger-free, housing-stable community. The coronavirus has threatened this with an unprecedented health and economic crisis.
The Family Recovery Fund will help families in the Western and Southwestern region of Wake County (Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina, Willow Springs and surrounding rural areas) stabilize after the devastating economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We will work with the county and other partner agencies to ensure that we are coordinating support and strategically deploy these funds to help families recover and maintain stability going forward. The Family Recovery Fund will allow us to broaden our scope of assistance beyond just rental and utility assistance.
We have already raised $50,000 from local municipalities, corporate & private donors. We are hoping to raise a total of $150,000+.
Will you join us in supporting our neighbors and keeping our community strong?

“The COVD-19 pandemic continues to challenge many of our families with food insecurity, financial hardship, and access to essential resources. Our Town Council is passionate about providing hope and relief to our community. We are proud to support WWCM with a $20,000 award to their Family Recovery Fund. This will allow more families to be served. There is nothing we can’t accomplish when we work together.”

Voices from the Community
“Having no income at this time is extremely hard. I have a 2-year-old son.”
"I was cleaning homes to pay my bills and now due to the virus all my customers have canceled so I have not received my normal pay for 6 weeks. I’m not sure how I will pay my bills."
“We took in a homeless college student. I just couldn’t say no to a need although my household is strained already. There’s 6 in our home right now.”
I am unemployed, and I have been living off savings for nine months, with that balance of my nest egg declining each month.
