Success Stories
Recovering in the Community
A staff member worked with a consumer who experienced a fire in their apartment this month.

The fire caused extensive damage and the landlord told the consumer that they could no longer live there. We have been working with them to gather the needed documentation to submit to the housing program, so the consumer would be classified as homeless and in turn, become a priority to receive housing.

The staff member also referred the consumer to other housing resources, so they could explore all their options for obtaining temporary or permanent housing.
Setting a Budget
Our staff worked with a consumer who needed assistance with their utility bill due to unforeseen car expenses. We called Duke Energy with the consumer to figure out what they owed due to some confusion. We then called the Department of Social Services with the consumer.

After receiving no answer from DSS, we referred the consumer to a resource specific to Fuquay-Varina. The consumer was able to apply for financial assistance through this organization and receive the assistance they needed. 
Our vision is to see North Carolinians who experience a disability live in the communities of their choice and be empowered to address their own needs.

With your support, we can make that vision a reality!
