Wake Interfaith Hospitality Network (WIHN)
FamilyPromiseSmallWorking together with area churches, Family Promise of Wake county provides professional case management as well as food, shelter, and transportation for homeless families as they work hard to restore their independence. Famiy Promise is one of the few agencies in the area committed to helping homeless families stay together. It works with a network of 35 churches in Wake County to provide help for immediate and long range needs of homeless families in the area. Churches provide food and fellowship to about 4 to 5 families during a one week stay at the church facilities. Families stay overnight in the church and in the mornings are transported to the day center in Raleigh for the day where they are provided with day care for their children, transportation, transitional housing assistance, job placement assistance, financial counseling, family crisis counseling and so much more. Families return to the church later in the day where they are hosted with dinner and fellowship. 
 
As part of our commitment as a Host Church, WFPC extends a warm invitation to our guests two weeks during the year. We provide shelter, food and Christian fellowship. Many of our families come each night to bring food and share supper and friendship with our guests. We also have volunteers from our church that sign up to stay overnight on specific evenings and others that drive our guests to and from the WIHN Center in Raleigh.
