Mission:
Wake Interfaith Hospitality Network (WIHN), is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to assist homeless families in achieving independence with dignity. WIHN assists families in the transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency by providing an average of 39 days of service. To both involve and educate the community, WIHN mobilizes more than 2000 volunteers from 50 congregations to provide families with shelter, meals and encouragement. The professional staff provides resource oriented case management, individualized counseling and loving encouragement to each family.
Results:
In 2012, WIHN served 50 families (58 adults and 113 children) in our Emergency Shelter Program. In transitional housing, we served 25 families, consisting of 99 individuals, with 32 adults and 67 children. Of those 25 families, 14 have exited the program and 11 carried over into 2013. For those who exited, 12 families (86%) moved into permanent housing.
