Help us build A NEW HOMELESS SHELTER in Wilkes County!
The Catherine H. Barber Memorial Shelter has been located on Hwy 18N for 30+ years. While we are very grateful for the many years we have been able to rent our current location, the increase of homeless adults , children, and families in our areas along with the need to increase our services has compelled us to build a new shelter.
We encourage you to donate to this vital service in Wilkes County. Our goal is to raise $500,000. That’s only 500 donations of $1,000 each or 5000 donations of $100. Any donation amount is appreciated and ALL will go directly toward this building project. All donations are 100% tax deductible!
Last year we served hunderds of individuals with 2,069 bed nights. We currently have 6 beds for men, 4 beds for women and a small room a family. With the new shelter we will have many more beds, a learning/job resource center, laundry services, full kitchen facilities, adequate bathing facilities, and a separate family area.
Thanks in advance for caring about others and helping us build this shelter!
