Our Vision

No homeless families in our community

Our Mission

Moving Families in Wake and surrounding counties from homelessness to stable homes through mentoring, housing support and connection to community resources.

Our Belief

We believe every family deserves a home, and children should never have to wonder where they're going to sleep at night. This is why we connect families to stable homes as quickly as possible - and why we remain connected with them to ensure that they begin the process of bettering their lives. Children experiencing homelessness are more likely to drop out of school, be exposed to violence, and face a host of behavioral, social and health issues. Keeping families together during this traumatic time is critical for their success as well as the community's.
