Our Crisis Center helps families in the Raleigh community!

BackPack Buddies:    In 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.  


Food Assistance from the Client's Choice Market

The Client's Choice Market was the first client-choice food pantry in Wake County. 

It provides food assistance to neighbors in need through a format that lets neighbors in crisis pick the food their families will eat instead having to accept whatever is given to them. This is designed to help maintains a neighbor's dignity through the provision of food.  

The Market is also able to provide fresh food to neighbors thanks to our community garden and donations!
