Coordinated Access System

The Raleigh Wake Partnership is committed to creating and promoting a Coordinated Access System that is a fair and equitable system for everyone entering the system.


The Raleigh Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness provides primary HMIS support for the Raleigh/Wake Continuum of Care (NC-507).


Together, we can make a difference for the most vulnerable in our Raleigh Wake Community. Together, we have the real opportunity to make systemic change.

Raleigh is the 2nd most expensive area to live in North Carolina? Raleigh renters need to earn $23.08/hour to afford a 2 bedroom apartment.

With your support, we can build capacity to address the shortage of affordable housing.

Over the last year (August 2020 – August 2021) all volume to our Access Hub has increased 218%.

The need of your neighbors experiencing homelessness or at-risk, is great and growing.  You can make a difference.

We say “Person experiencing homelessness” rather than calling someone homeless?

Someone’s SITUATION does not define them as a person.

This is the kind of thing we cover in our Ending Homelessness Academy.

In North Carolina, if earning minimum wage you need to work 86 hours per week to afford a 1-bedroom apartment.
