Relief from Crisis


Early this year, the NRM Crisis Center met with a client, Michelle, who was in dire need of emergency assistance. Her circumstances seemed overwhelming as she had suffered a stroke and was facing eviction from her apartment. The stroke came as a huge surprise; she was just in her 40’s and in great health. As a single woman with no living relatives, she had a limited support network to help her while she recovered.

Michelle was anxiously waiting for her doctor to release her, so she could return to work. She depended on her job as a manicurist for income but had trouble holding her hands still after the trauma of the stroke. Medical bills were piling up and she didn’t know where to turn. Thankfully Wake County Health and Human Services encouraged her to seek our help. We were blessed to help pay her rent, so she could avoid eviction and stay in her home. Additionally, through our food market, we provided her much needed food to help her along in her recovery.

NRM is grateful for the donors and volunteers who dedicate their resources to serve those in our community who are vulnerable and in crisis!
