What does it feel like to need help from groups like ours? To find out, visit: http://playspent.org/

Western Wake Crisis Ministry was founded in 1983 by a small group of churches and community members interested in coordinating benevolence services to our neighbors in need in Apex, Holly Springs (NC), and surrounding areas. We continue to be a shared Ministry of our local churches, towns, businesses, civic groups and individuals.

Our mission is to provide a helping hand to the Apex & Holly Springs (NC) community – in the form of food or crisis financial aid – to those in our community whose ability to sustain independent living is threatened by unexpected circumstances: illness, car or home repairs, decrease in wages, etc.

WWCM helps our neighbors in need solely through community donations. Our neighbors include the owner of a tree removal company whose work was affected by the drought; the waitress at a local restaurant who was in a car accident; the house painter who is in between jobs; the school bus driver who has an insulin dependent child; the grandmother who cannot make ends meet on a limited social security income; and the manager who was laid off from a large company that was downsizing.
