About Us

Our Mission

Oak City Cares is a services hub for connecting individuals and families at risk of, or currently experiencing, homelessness to coordinated services that create a path to stable housing and renewed hope.

Our Vision

Oak City Cares envisions a community where all people have access to stable housing and their human dignity, worth, and rights are respected; where the length of time a person experiences homelessness is minimized by removing the barriers that hinder them from accessing essential and coordinated services; and where community collaborations with government, non-profit and faith based organizations strengthen the pathways to these life rebuilding services.

Our Values

We value:

  • The worth and human dignity of all guests.
  • A caring and compassionate environment where people come first.
  • The collaboration of service providers whose objective is the coordination of client-centered care.
  • Committed volunteers and their ability to build relationships that are critical to restoring hope in the lives of the people experiencing homelessness.
  • Endeavors that result in community impact through partnerships of government, business, healthcare, and faith-based organizations coming together.
