Mr. Johnson's Story

The Johnson family, a family of five residing in
our community, faced a challenging situation
in early 2023 when Mr. Johnson, the family's
sole breadwinner, lost his job unexpectedly.
The loss of income left the family in a
precarious position, with three young children,
one of whom had a medical disability, to
provide for.
In response, the Johnsons reached out to
Western Wake Crisis Ministry for assistance.
Our team immediately provided food
assistance, recognizing the urgency of their
situation. We also worked closely with Mr.
Johnson through our case management
program, offering guidance on job search
strategies and connecting him to employment
resources in the community.
Over the next three months, the Johnsons'
circumstances improved significantly. Mr.
Johnson secured a new job.
The Johnsons' story demonstrates the impact
of Western Wake Crisis Ministry's holistic
support. By addressing both immediate needs
and fostering long-term stability, we empower
families like the Johnsons to overcome crises
and build brighter futures.
As we enter 2024, Western Wake Crisis
Ministry remains dedicated to our mission of
providing compassionate assistance to those
facing crises. We express our heartfelt
gratitude to our supporters, volunteers, and
partners for their contributions to our work.
Together, we will continue to build bridges
and inspire hope in the Western Wake
community.
