 Maria’s Story

“Going to Western Wake Crisis Ministry means we don’t have to choose between paying our bills and eating. I just love the people there. We’ve become family.”

When Maria moved to Apex with her children and husband, he found a job, but it didn’t cover their expenses.

The day she was handed a resource information sheet, Maria learned about Western Wake Crisis Ministry. And it
didn’t come a moment too soon.

“Our electricity was about to be cut off. We got help that day. What I didn’t realize then was how special this place is and how they would help us on so many levels.”

When Maria was introduced to the Food Pantry, she found more than just groceries.

“It’s hard on your self-esteem to ask for food, but I’m treated with kindness and respect and I can nourish my family. They also look for ways to educate, like the helpful cooking class I took with my kids. I always come out with more knowledge! You’re not just another person, you feel like you belong.”

What started as a visit for a crisis, has developed into a relationship that continues to sustain Maria’s family today. “Going to Western Wake Crisis Ministry means we don’t have to choose between paying our bills and eating. I just love the people there. We’ve become family.”
