This area of the City has few services of this kind to offer people. WKNC assists low-income people and those who are homeless or under-housed. Through our programs and partnerships we provide a six day-a-week drop-in. At the drop-in people are able to obtain referrals for housing support and eviction prevention; assistance with income and health issues including HIV/AIDs prevention, needle exchange, condoms, crack use kits and personal hygiene items, and employment referrals. There is access to housing lists, telephone, fax and copier, Internet sources, newspapers, clothing, showers and laundry facilities,. By having a place to meet others and to socialize the sense of isolation is somewhat diminished. People who use the services often feel a sense of belonging. Help is given in a non-judgmental atmosphere, reducing some of the frustration experienced when dealing with the bureaucracy. Those with literacy and language challenges are helped to access the government systems. In a community people tend to be more contributing and law abiding when they feel a sense of belonging rather than alienation. When the needs of community members are being addressed we are contributing to building a healthy community to benefit everyone.
