Did you know…

The Partnership brought together a workgroup to conduct a gaps analysis of our homeless response system. Here's what they found.

To end homelessness in Wake County we need:

  • 811 Affordable Housing Units
  • 723 Permanent Supportive Housing Units
  • 759 Rapid Re-housing Units
  • 325 Emergency Shelter beds
If you are experiencing homelessness or are at-risk of becoming homeless, you’re not alone. Help is available.

Call the Access Hub at 919.443.0096 or

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.
