Homelessness doesn’t have a certain look. You may or may not notice the men, women and children who are struggling with homelessness. They may be sleeping in their car, or on a friend’s couch. Perhaps they’re living temporarily with their parents, or in a motel room. Maybe they’ve found emergency shelter.
In Raleigh and Wake County, homelessness is increasing 8% each year. With over 5,500 individuals seeking homeless services, 70% of those are considered homeless due to a recent situation in their lives.
Homelessness doesn’t just happen. There are underlying causes. Many who are homeless have experienced trauma, domestic violence, family tragedy, job loss, addiction or health issues.
