Raleigh and Wake County transitional housing and homeless shelters.

Families facing eviction and the homeless can turn to shelters and emergency housing programs in Wake County. The programs can provide transitional services, low income homes or apartments, and other types of support. Participants of these Raleigh area programs can also benefit from other services to prevent future homelessness, such as job training and budgeting.

The housing resources will offer other types of support as well, including food, basic needs such as clothing, and more. Some non-profits or groups may have financial aid for expenses such as security deposits or first month's rent. When available, this will be for people facing imminent eviction or those individuals that are trying to move into a new home. However that financial support is less common.

Some of the programs in Wake County North Carolina have restrictions and conditions in order to get into a homeless shelter or transitional housing program. They may focus on veterans, single parents or the currently homeless. However almost all centers and non-profits will at least have referrals and information. Or they can even direct people to government resources such as low income vouchers and subsidized housing units.
