Interfaith Initiative on Homelessness
Unity takes part in the Interfaith Homelessness Education, Action & Response Network (IHEAR), a joint initiative among Wake County churches to help homeless and low-income residents and address the root causes of homelessness. IHEAR has compiled a directory of free services — including meals, clothing, shelter, toiletries, medical and dental care, and haircuts — which has been distributed to area churches. Unity has donated supplies to Oak City Cares, an organization that provides free shower and laundry facilities in downtown Raleigh. We are on the IHEAR steering committee and look forward to becoming more involved in this cause. Contact Carol Hessenflow.
