The Problem:

Homelessness is a problem that is occurring with increased frequency in the cities and towns of North Carolina.  The N.C. Department of Human Resources reports a 50% increase in the number of persons  seeking shelter in Raleigh, the state capitol.

Our Challenge:

Recognizing the growing numbers of homeless persons in the City of Raleigh, N.C., the Women’s Missionary Society (WMS) of the Western North Carolina (WNC) Annual Conference, in 1987, pledged to carry out the goal to help the plight of the homeless.

Our Response:

The WNC Conference Branch WMS opened the AME Church Shelter in Raleigh in April, 1988, with the assistance of Mrs. Shirley J. Sheares, Founder, and others. Seeking to provide more than just shelter, the AME Church Shelter attempts to make constructive use of the daylight hours to coordinate vital city services  (i.e. social, medical, employment) in ways that help homeless persons solve the problems that create and sustain their homeless condition
