The number of households currently in homeless shelters across Wake County.
The number of households (individuals + families) waiting for a shelter bed or Street Outreach.
The number of households (individuals + families) in need if housing.
As the pandemic creates record numbers of COVID-19 cases every day, we also see a record number of individuals and families becoming homeless.
In September 2020, Wake County had roughly 700 people considered homeless or facing possible eviction. By November, over 1,300 residents need shelter or housing.
These numbers continue to grow as the shelter system is at capacity.
This is not a problem that can be solved by one agency alone.
Homelessness requires a community-wide effort.
Uniquely serving as the backbone organization, the Raleigh Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness integrates and builds capacity throughout the entire network of nonprofits, government agencies, and service organizations, who are addressing homelessness in our community.
Our role is to bring efficiency, accountability, collaboration, and to bridge the gaps.
In addition, we provide front-end access to services through the Access Hub . This essential service reduces the bottleneck in the system and helps those experiencing homelessness to get the housing they need, not just temporary shelter. Our goals are reachable with your help:
- Reduce the flow of people into already overburdened shelters through diversion efforts such as making appropriate connections with Eviction Prevention programs or identifying informal solutions to help families maintain stable housing.
- Follow homeless households with a by-name-list to ensure that no one falls through the cracks.
