Homelessness doesn’t have a certain look. You may or may not notice the men, women and children who are struggling with homelessness. They may be sleeping in their car, or on a friend’s couch. Perhaps they’re living temporarily with their parents, or in a motel room. Maybe they’ve found emergency shelter.
In Raleigh and Wake County, homelessness is increasing 8% each year. With over 6,000 individuals seeking homeless services, 70% of those are considered homeless due to a recent situation in their lives.
THE NEW LIFE PLAN
The New Life Plan has six distinct Phases, each building upon the previous. It addresses the needs of our homeless clients by providing for basic needs such as food, clothing, hygiene and healthcare – and then moving through a series of programs that include counseling, parenting classes, vocational training, obtaining a car to make employment options wider, and then gaining employment and moving into their own apartment or home.
The New Life Plan also provides for the needs of the children in our care. You can read more about our Children's New Life Plan.
