Wake Interfaith Hospitality Network, Inc. (WIHN) provides professional case management as well as food, shelter, and transportation for qualified homeless families as they work to restore their independence. WIHN is one of only two agencies in Raleigh committed to helping homeless families with children stay together. This is accomplished in partnership with over 30 churches in Wake County. TBC became a part of this network in July 2005. We are assigned 1 host week each quarter during which time WIHN “guests” make TBC their home from 5:30 each evening to 6:30 the next morning.
Trinity’s WIHN Lead Team and volunteers help in a variety of areas including setting up and taking down the WIHN living area (den, eating area and six bedrooms) before and after each week; staying overnight as host/hostess with the guest families; driving the WIHN van to transport families to and from the WIHN Day Center in the mornings and evenings; providing hot evening meals; and spending time with the children in the evenings to give parents a break. There are volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, Sunday School classes, and other groups in the church.
