serving people in need

HELP HUB IS A COLLABORATIVE  OUTREACH PROGRAM PROVIDING SHORT-TERM OR EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE TO  INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES IN NEED OF FINANCIAL HELP AND/OR GUIDANCE TO CONNECT THEM WITH ADDITIONAL RESOURCES.


Struggling individuals and families are welcome to visit with Help Hub volunteers who will listen and assess their situation. Help Hub strives to prevent or ease immediate crisis situations with financial assistance, referrals to Harrelson Center Partners or connections to community resources. Since Hurricane Florence, we are seeing 25-30 individuals daily seeking financial assistance;  double our normal volume. Individual donations for emergency assistance are welcome, essential, and can be made securely here or by check made payable to the Help Hub and mailed to the Harrelson Center.

background

For years, area churches and non-profits have discussed ways to more efficiently serve those seeking financial assistance and/or needing help connecting to other resources.

Rather than working separately to address these concerns, The Harrelson Center, along with three Wilmington churches, combined resources to create The Help Hub. The Harrelson Center’s central location, on-site resource connections and heart to serve make it a uniquely ideal home for The Help Hub. By merging resources, we are able to make a greater impact in serving individuals and families in need in our community.
