About Our Coalition
First and foremost, CoalitionNC listens, partners with, and heals. Each individual is different, and each person’s journey is their own. We meet every client exactly where they are, then walk with them to provide counseling and guidance for substance abuse, mental health counseling, life skills education, or any (or all) of the above.
We teach. And we do this in a way that educates the individual, not the masses. Our teaching includes life skills, job skills training, social expectations, and/or budgeting. We do this for 6-8 months, and then provide ‘aftercare’ for as long as necessary. For life, if that’s what’s needed.
Once a client is ready to get back to society, we employ. And through aftercare and ongoing counseling, we help each client stay employed. Healing is individualized, education is a partnership, and employment is something we ensure benefits both our new employee and employer alike.
Why Donate To CoalitionNC
CoalitionNC solves homelessness in Raleigh.
Our innovative solution is founded in a multi-faceted, holistic – yet also, individualized – approach. We partner with other local non-profits to help our underserved citizens through healing, teaching, training, counseling, mentoring and job placement. We provide life skills and job training, mental health counseling and addiction treatment, plus continuous, ongoing aftercare.
Our clients surprisingly come from all walks of life – they may be formerly incarcerated, or veterans, victims of generational poverty, single moms, runaway teens, LGTBQ individuals, survivors of domestic violence, or anyone else who may need a hand to help them stand up again. At CoalitionNC, we don’t just “give our clients a fish;” we teach them to fish. We are always faith-based, but never faith-exclusive. And we partner with each and every individual as they journey through our comprehensive program – from homelessness to steadfast independence, and from a less-than-ideal yesterday to a promising tomorrow.

Our Top Priorities
At CoalitionNC, we heal, educate and employ. We address the root causes of homelessness to permanently stop the cycle.
CoalitionNC’s program is modeled after GeorgiaWorks! and Homeboy Industries, each boasting a great than 80% year-after-year success rate.
Then we teach – life skills, social skills, and applicable job training. Important lessons that are often expected, but not all of us were taught.
Once our clients are ready, and independent, and strong, we find them employment to match their skillset. This is done through our Staffing Services segment.
Job placement, whether temporary or temp-to-perm, helps ensure self-sufficiency for years to come. Our staffing services agency is based on already-proven models.
We remain committed to each of our clients through aftercare, with an open-door policy for future healing needs. For whenever and as long as they need.
First we heal, to strengthen and empower each of our clients. Healing is the foundation – the very cornerstone of our program.
Help Us Reach Our $2.2 Million Goal
Contribute to our 2020 Campaign
We’re on a lifelong mission to restore hope for the homeless. That is why we’re working hard towards raising $2.3 million. Every single penny that we gather is crucial to facilitating our ambition and achieving our vision. Of the $2.3 million raised, $800,000 will be specifically allocated towards retrofitting a complex to house and care for our 170 participants. Each individual will receive the proper amenities and accommodations to achieve optimal care results. Moreover, our fully customized housing will not only enable each person to succeed but to excel in our program. Lastly, another $1,400,000 will be reserved for our social enterprise sector, which includes food, payroll, transportation, and daily supplies. Let the wise words of Bishop Desmond Tutu remind us that even the smallest act of donation can has the potential to result in something grand:
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
