RALEIGH, N.C. (PRWEB) July 11, 2022
RGN doubles grant money allocated from last year to help offset $600K in grant requests.
Homelessness in Wake County is a public health crisis that has created an unprecedented number of requests from local nonprofits. With rent prices soaring and limited access to permanent housing, nonprofits are faced with helping more families but with limited resources. This year in Wake County nonprofit grant requests exceeded over $600,000.
To help those nonprofits and to give the community a better opportunity for permanent housing, RGN is proud to announce winners of our 4th Annual Community Grants Program:
- Families Together
- Fellowship Home
- Haven House
- Oak City Cares
- Raleigh/Wake Partnership to End Homelessness
- The Carying Place
“This gift from the Realtor® Giving Network will supercharge our programming to provide homeless working families with children access to life skills training that propels them to independent living,” said Leslie Covington, Executive Director of The Carying Place.
Heather Thompson, Executive Director of RGN, shared that Realtors® demonstrate their commitment to strong, healthy, and inclusive neighborhoods by investing in the RRAR Realtor® Giving Network (RGN). “We are proud and humbled to offer crucial operational money to each of these nonprofits that provide critical care, resources and hope to those in our community who are homeless or transitioning from homelessness to stable housing,” said Thompson.
The Community Grants Program provides general funding to area nonprofit organizations that address unmet housing needs in Wake County. RGN prioritizes proven housing-based solutions linked with supportive services. The next grant application cycle will be the first quarter of 2023.
