The Raleigh Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness leads a collaborative network of community partners focused on solutions to end and prevent homelessness in our community.

The Partnership has become the knowledge base for the COC. While we have a large administrative component, the Partnership is now a repository of skilled and experienced staff who can follow through on issues battling homelessness. In addition to “static” knowledge such as regulations and best practices, we also now offer  “dynamic” knowledge with up-to-the-minute data reflecting meaningful trends. Building trust where it had been lacking is one perspective. Another is to see knowledge and data as the value we add along with exceptional administrative competence.

Kim Crawford brings a wealth of experience to our organization. She holds both a BS in Business Administration and an MS in Corporate Communication from Lindenwood College. Her academic accomplishments also include an MA in Religion and Theology from the United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. Before she arrived at the Partnership, Kim was the NC ESG Homeless Programs Administrator. Other former positions include serving as Executive Director of the Allied Churches of Alamance County (ACAC) shelter, and the Life House, Inc. shelter for at-risk homeless children in Duluth, Minnesota.

Her passion to end homelessness prompted her to serve on multiple committees and projects during her career. She facilitated the successful execution of the first Alamance County Project Homeless Connect (ACICHA) “Bad Building Tour,” highlighting the poor quality of affordable housing in the community.

“I’m excited by the opportunity to work with the Raleigh Wake Partnership to End Homelessness. I look forward to using my experience to bring the organization’s reach further into the community to assist more people in crisis, and hopefully break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.”
