The Helen Wright Center for Women is a program for single, homeless women without children in their care.
Emergency Shelter
We currently designate 12 beds for emergency shelter. Women are offered an initial seven night stay and may request additional time if they wish to enter a program bed. If you are in need of shelter today please call 919-833-1748 after 1:00pm.
Helen Wright Program
The Helen Wright Center for Women’s program provides more than housing assistance. With a focus on the establishment of well-defined goals and objectives, women are offered an opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness and achieve self-sufficiency through intensive case management services.
The basic components of case management include intake, assessment of needs, service planning, linkage to services, continuous monitoring, and client advocacy. In addition to increasing access to medical and psycho-social services, case management can also include crisis intervention, discharge planning and direct services such as emotional support, client education, and skill building.
