At Passage Home, we’re all about people and places.
More specifically, we come alive when we’re connecting families and neighborhoods to resources and opportunities. Whether we’re helping a struggling family with affordable housing or an addict with recovery, our approach is the same. We meet people where they are and provide them with the resources necessary to gain economic sustainability.
Why? Because the people we’re serving are stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty. Most can’t help being there. None can break free without help. And we must be doing something right.
In July 2013, North Carolina recognized our hard work by naming us the Community Action Agency (CAA) in Wake County, affirming our role in the community as reliable and capable of managing funds targeted at developing anti-poverty strategies in our county.
Sure. We’re proud of this accolade, but we’re more focused on the hard work ahead. The funding that accompanies our selection as Wake County’s CAA has enabled us to broaden our reach into the eastern part of the county and equipped us to increase our impact. Poverty is far too large and complex an issue for one organization to eradicate. But we’re committed at Passage Home to ending it for the families we serve.
