Today in Wake County

  • Over 1000 men, women & children are homeless —
    and each year that number increases by 11%.
  • 9.1% of the county’s population lives below the poverty line and regularly seeks
    help for food, clothing and crisis expenses.
  • The waiting list for The Salvation Army’s Shelter for Women and Children
    stands at 80
    — tonight they must sleep on the street.
  • Due to strained resources this year, we have had to
    turn away more than 1000 families in need of financial assistance and food.

As it has done for over 120 years, The Salvation Army of Wake County is taking action in the name of Jesus Christ. In order to meet today’s level of need, however, we must do moregive more food, provide more shelter, offer more hope.

The Center of Hope: A Campaign for Shelter, Refuge, Salvation — for Hope.

For the first time in several decades, The Salvation Army of Wake County is expectantly turning to you, our community, with a request: Help us build the Center of Hope and do more good. This Capital Campaign, aimed at raising $12,000,000, will accomplish more than the construction of a larger building. Rather, the 41,000-square-foot Center of Hope will allow us to better meet the mounting needs in Wake County.

We need The Center of Hope.
And for that, we need you. Today.
