Your Donation Makes a Difference

North Carolina's 1.4 million low-income families are struggling more than ever. The need for affordable housing, reliable transportation, living-wage employment and sufficient nutrition abound, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It takes time, money, and dedication to help families overcome the challenges of poverty and achieve economic self-sufficiency. Your donation supports our statewide work to help more people in need.
