Pharaoh’s Daughter exists to provide hope for pregnant incarcerated women and their babies in breaking the generational cycle of poverty, incarceration, and recidivism. They do this by caring for babies while their mom is incarcerated, and then caring for the mom and baby after she is released. Caring for the mom and child is tailored to meet individual needs, but often includes providing housing, structure, and family care, as well as childcare, help with schooling and job training, and counseling.
Oak City partners with Pharaoh’s Daughter by providing volunteers and gathering donations for the moms and children participating in their program. To learn more about how you can get involved, contact Meg Anderson.
The Smithfield Rescue Mission exists to proclaim the love of Jesus to those who are homeless and in need. Their approach is “whole-isitic,” meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of men, women, and children. The rescue mission has a short-term emergency shelter, as well as a long-term program designed to break the cycle of poverty and addiction within a Christ-centered therapeutic community.
Oak City Church partners with SRM through volunteer work days, and meeting needs through donations of goods and services for the people the mission serves. For more information on how you can get involved with the mission, contact Meg Anderson.
The Raleigh Dream Center is a volunteer-driven organization providing social services and community programs to homeless, abused, and impoverished high-risk youth, individuals, and families in the Triangle area. RDC’s primary way of serving the community is through its Adopt-a-Block program. Twice a month in neighborhoods all over Raleigh, RDC knocks on doors, provides groceries for households, plays with children, and has intentional Gospel conversations. It’s family-friendly, so kids are welcome. Our desire is to come alongside RDC as they work to build long-lasting relationships in communities. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can help, email Megan McManus.
