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 over a six-month period. 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.
