The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world, through five key service areas: Disaster Relief, Supporting America’s Military Families, Lifesaving Blood, Health and Safety Services, and International Services.
Our goal is very simple, and that is to reach out and to meet the basic, essential, and necessary needs of those who find themselves within desperate circumstances. We strongly believe, we can be of impact, not only in meeting their physical needs, but we also believe we can be instrumental in the restoration of hope, to these our invisible neighbors, who are hungry, desperate, poor, homeless, and in critical need of life's most basic necessities. We believe in One Commitment, One Community, One Life and One Now!

It is our prayer that all of Caring Connections' women will feel loved, hopeful and excited to start a new journey to self-sufficiency, success, and in living a life of purpose and meaning.

Christian Life Home is a non-denominational, non-profit organization under the supervision of an active and praying Board of Directors. The ministry was started by concerned individuals in the community who wanted to provide a brighter future for pregnant women and their babies.
"Church in the Woods" was born out of prayer teams going out onto the streets to pray for people "on location". Hands on ministry. The Bible says to leave the 99 and go find the one. Most agencies are not equipped to search for those in need. We are that tool. "CITW" visits the homeless along with volunteer team members. Teams bring food, toiletries, sleeping bags, clothing and love to the people they find. Counseling, prayer and friendship are also offered. "Church in the Woods" is made up of dedicated volunteers who want to "touch" the lives of those in need. No one is beyond the reach of God, no matter how addicted or broken.
We’re a Christian nonprofit where girls in high-risk situations experience healing and transformational life change with a rescued horse and a loving community. We believe that anyone who has been broken can be made whole again and that horses can reach the heart of an at-risk girl in a way that others in their lives often cannot.
Council on Immigrant Relations, was founded in 2006 as a non-profit to organize and engage churches and civic organizations in building relationships with under-resourced international communities that will empower and enrich the entire community. CIR also provides legal services to those who could not other wise afford them. Because God calls each us to love the immigrant!
Covered in Love is a non profit ministry that helps moms find HOPE after miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss. Its founders, Lisa Kane and Bonnie Braswell, both lost baby sons in 2011 and know first hand the pain and emptiness that follow such a loss. During their journey through loss, Lisa and Bonnie met each other and realized quickly that God had brought them together to minister to others facing the same situation. Through prayer blankets for moms, a website filled with devotionals and words of encouragement and a monthly grief support group, Covered in Love shares God’s love and the hope that is in Christ with moms walking through the journey of loss. Lisa and Bonnie know that they were chosen to be their baby boys’ mommies and know that their sons’ passings were for a greater purpose. They trust in the plans of a sovereign God and pray that many hearts are healed and many lives are transformed as a result of Covered in Love.
Dorcas Ministries provides crisis relief to area residents who seek stability and self-sufficiency through food and financial assistance, scholarships, training programs, referrals and an affordable thrift shop.
We believe every family deserves a home, and children should never have to wonder where they’re going to sleep at night. That’s why we connect families with children to a stable home as quickly as possible so they can begin the process of bettering their lives. Our mission: Moving Wake County families from homelessness to stable homes through mentoring, housing support and connecting to community resources.
We remain one of only two emergency shelters in Wake County to allow families to stay together, regardless of the ages and genders of the children and parents, sparing parents the difficult choice between keeping their families together and finding a safe place for their children to sleep. We are the only homelessness nonprofit to offer a continuum of services and partnerships to move families all the way from homelessness to safe, affordable, permanent housing.

Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Changing a plot of dirt into a house is dramatic, but the real change is what happens when a family transitions out of poverty housing. At Habitat for Humanity, our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Affordable homeownership makes new opportunities available to these families and their children, including savings, a sense of security, space to grow, and good neighbors. Habitat Wake is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical housing ministry.
Healing Transitions is a non-profit rescue, recovery and rehabilitation facility for homeless men and women with alcohol and drug addictions.

Hope Reins provides comfort to hurting children and their families by providing one-on-one sessions between caring leaders and extraordinary ‘equine counselors,’ many of whom are rescued horses and faced abuse and neglect themselves. Our services are free of charge and made possible by public donations.
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is an innovative hunger-relief organization serving seven counties in and around the Triangle. We believe hunger IS fixable if the community works together to do two things: create sources of healthy food in every low-income neighborhood and grow opportunities for people to provide for themselves by learning job skills or growing their own food. From BackPack Buddies to nutrition education, mobile markets to culinary job training to urban agriculture training, we go directly to people in need and create what works to empower them. We feed. We teach. We grow… to create a hunger-free and healthy community.
For nearly 160 years, the YMCA of the Triangle has strengthened the very foundations of the community we serve. We’re proud of our diverse community and are passionate about being a positive force for good. Over the years, we’ve made changes to meet the needs of our growing community. But one thing has stayed the same: our mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
