​1420 S. Wilmington St. Raleigh 

In 2001, the County opened a newly renovated emergency and transitional shelter for homeless men that changed the way we offer services to the homeless population. The South Wilmington Street Center provides a tier of services both on- and off-site that are designed to lead men to self-sufficiency. The shelter provides some short-term emergency dorms with overnight shelter only, while other dorms offer longer-term shelter to men who engage in services. Those services range from case management, budgeting and credit counseling, mental health/substance abuse treatment and referrals to other programs. The goal is to provide safe shelter while the men develop realistic plans for moving out of the shelter, and into employment and housing of their own.

For more information, call the shelter at 919-857-9428

The South Wilmington Street Center is managed by our Housing Affordability and Community Revitalization Department. For a list of other housing locations click here
