SPONSOR 2022 ENDING HOMELESSNESS ACADEMY
This is a unique opportunity for corporations and businesses to be part of the solutions to end homelessness. The issue of homelessness is complex and ever-changing, which means educating service providers and our community on challenges and best practices for solutions is vital.
The need in Wake County is greater than ever. No single entity can end homelessness, but together we can make a difference in our community.
When you support the Partnership, you’re helping to plant the seeds that will bring about the systemic change required to solve the issue of homelessness.
