One of the things we liked most about Families Together is their very strong home page.
This is by far the best Call-To-Action that we’ve seen in a long time. The image and text does not leave any doubt as to what the problem is and there’s a direct statement about how we can help and a prominent “Donate Now” button. Once we saw this we had to learn more about the organization.
There are thousands of children experiencing homelessness in Wake County. Families Together works toward its mission to help those Wake County children and their families move from homelessness to stable homes through mentoring, housing support and connections to community resources. Their vision is to end homelessness for Wake County families.
Families Together has been providing families a way out of crisis for over 35 years, helping them move into permanent homes as quickly as possible. The program is designed to shorten the time a family is homeless and address the trauma of children and parents, all while supporting each family as they find permanent housing.
Children and their families are kept together during the entire process while they connect with personal mentors, community services, and skill building. The Families Together staff serves each individual family for up to a year.
What we love about Families Together is that they focus on changing the lives of children and families experiencing homelessness while giving them the ability to move forward. A home is an incredibly essential need for a family to sustain itself. The Families Together mission shows their compassion for strengthening families.
