The Challenge

Too many communities have been left behind in North Carolina. We must address these challenges.

  • Home@2x

    1 in 6 adults and 1 in 4 children live in poverty in North Carolina.

  • Home-1@2x

    Little investment in vulnerable communities and loans are difficult to obtain.

  • Home-2@2x

    High unemployment rate in rural NC and many communities have no voice in Raleigh.
