Help for Residents

Wake County has been working to ensure residents could continue accessing services throughout the COVID-19 response effort. In some cases, services have been expanded to help people get the assistance they need during this challenging time. 

If you need help, a good place to start is the Wake Network of Care. Public agencies, nonprofits and local businesses have come together to create a list of resources available to specifically meet the new demands created by COVID-19. Many of these services have returned to pre-pandemic levels:

Food for Families

Food resources are available to families and individuals in Wake County currently experiencing food insecurity.

North Carolina has approved the distribution of additional resources to families receiving free or reduced-price lunch. The additional benefits will be through the P-EBT program to help families buy food during the COVID-19 school closure. Learn more on the NC Department of Health and Human Services website.
