The needs are more complex than we imagine. In an area like Western Wake County, one of the best places to live in America, we don’t imagine children going to bed hungry or families living in a hotel after being evicted. But crisis happens here. The cost of health care, the loss of a job, or a major repair can send a family spiraling.
Over 3000 students in Apex area schools are food insecure
Over 4000 students were identified in Wake County Public Schools as homeless during the 2018-19 school year
(a 51% increase from five years ago)
Over 16,500 households faced eviction in Wake County in 2018, 2,680 in the Western Wake region
