Wayne County assistance programs

Over the last 40 years, people have been receiving help from the Wayne County Community Action Agency, better known as WAGES. While they do offer several resources to help families in today’s challenging economy, the most effective at helping people with their bills include the following.

Save on your heating and energy bills from the The Weatherization Program. This assistance program will help reduce the energy burden and expenses for lower income households. Qualified hospitals will receive free energy saving upgrades, such as extra insulation, caulking, and more. You can save hundreds of dollars per year.

For appliances and more, the HARRP program focuses on the replacement and repair of water heaters, heating and cooling appliances and devices, and ore. The aid is for elderly and disabled families. The HARPP program is for Lenoir, Wayne, and Greene  Counties.

Counseling and free advice is provided too. The overall mission of WAGES and the Self-sufficiency Project is to provide comprehensive case management, financial counseling, resources to assist with medical bills, and other aid that will strengthen and empower the entire family unit by equipping every family served with the skills needed to help themselves over the long term.

Overall, the WAGES community action group is dedicated to helping individuals and families improve their quality of life, health and also gain independence. WAGES will do whatever they can and advocate for the low income and the disadvantaged; they will encourage people to raise their self-esteem through education and job training; and also provide service and opportunities for service; and mobilize public, community, and private resources to help people find jobs and get other aid.

They are located at 601 Royall Ave. in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Phone number (919) 736-4268.
