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.
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.
