The professional staff provides resource oriented case management, individualized counseling and loving encouragement to each family.

Rating: 5 stars  

WIHN is an amazing organization. I've been involved for about a year - I wish I started sooner! The organization is well run and focused on families and ensuring they stay together during a difficult period in their lives. I commend WIHN for the great work they do and all those wonderful people supporting the organization. Keep up the great work and lets end family homelessness....

I have been volunteering for WIHN for over 20 years. When our church hosts the guests, I serve one of the dinner meals with by husband. The food is provided by our Sunday School class. The experience of serving others less fortunate is a blessing of proportional size. I never walk away feeling anything but gratitude, especially from those whom I serve. I love serving WIHN because it is a local program and I can see immediate results in what God can do through this program, from finding jobs, to finding transitional housing. The Interfaith Hospitality Network is needed so much across the United States and I pray that this program can be initiated in every city. Those less fortunate in Raleigh have a second chance in life in some of the toughest situations and it soothes my heart to know WIHN is there for those in need.

Amazing organization supported by many Wake County congregations. I was happy to volunteer my time watching children while parents in the program attended budgeting classes.
