Oak City Cares is a comprehensive, coordinated approach to making homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring in Wake County. Key services address housing, employment, health, and hunger for the most vulnerable of our Wake County neighbors who struggle to navigate the multitude of services available. This new model brings services together, in a convenient downtown Raleigh location, to create a path for individuals and families to stable housing and renewed hope. Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Raleigh created the nonprofit Oak City Cares to coordinate multiple services from Wake County nonprofits and Wake County Human Services in one central hub, ensuring people get onsite help and serving as a bridge to the ongoing resources they need. Now, Oak City Cares is a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit. Oak City Cares also brings together volunteers from faith communities, humanitarian organizations, and the business community to provide hospitality and support. Each person who comes through the door receives compassionate care and professional assistance finding what they need – all under one roof.
