Our Crisis Center helps families in the Raleigh community!

BackPack Buddies:    For 2015 NRM provided 3,304 backpacks of food on weekends for students. Approximately 120 students each week received the backpacks at six schools; Green Elementary, Stough Elementary, Baileywick Road Elementary, Lead Mine Elementary, Brassfield Elementary, and Millbrook Elementary. We do not provide backpacks during the summer.

Food Market:  In 2015 2,426 families and 3,742 individuals received food from the Crisis Center.  In addition to the vegetables produced from our garden, we were blessed with  donations of food and non-perishable items from church and group food drives, restaurants, individuals and companies.  We also shared with Helping Hands Mission, Capital Towers, Love Wins Ministry, and others providing sustenance to our community neighbors. 

Special Events:   Throughout the year NRM held special events for neighbors and families in the community.  In addition to Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner boxes, toys, baskets and stockings were provided.  The Dental Bus was with us for three visits impacting 43 individuals.  We were also able to provide school supplies and books because of your generous donations. 

The many blessings bestowed on NRM are so greatly appreciated!

North Raleigh Ministries Neighbor Services

North Raleigh Ministries strives to impact our community by "Helping Neighbors Now" when they are experiencing a crisis.  The Crisis Ministry is staffed with volunteers trained to walk through a crisis with neighbors in financial need and a neighbor's choice Market that encourages families to chose healthy nutritious foods.  A job search program assists with resume preparation and sharpening interview skills.  Many in our neighborhood are suffering and find themselves in need of assistance.

To be evaluated for assistance, an individual must bring a number of pieces of documentation to their appointment.  Call 919.844.6676 for additional information about client services.

NRM Crisis Ministry is open Monday and Thursday from 10 am to 3 pm. We are also open on Tuesday and Wednesday 10 am to 12:30 pm.


Our neighbors come to us from referrals and word of mouth. They can expect a warm welcome and to be treated with dignity and compassion. Need is evaluated by trained volunteers who meet one on one with each neighbor to assess their individual situation and develop a plan to meet their needs to the greatest extent possible. NRM helps to bridge the gap for hungry families, renters who face eviction, residents who cannot afford to pay for heat in the cold winter months.
