  • -Approximately 110 children are homeless in our community according to Davie County Schools data
  • -750,000-1,000,000 children in the United States experience homelessness each year
  • Families account for 40% of our nation’s homeless population
  • Generational poverty is a reality in our community
  • Every child and their family deserve a hand up to leave poverty behind

Our mission is to affect lasting change in the lives of homeless children and their families in Davie County. We want to share the common love of humanity with others by offering them a “hand up” instead of a “hand out.” Through our efforts together in the community, we will change lives.

Our vision is a county where every family has a home and the opportunity to create a better future.
