Emergency Housing Assistance

For those currently experiencing homelessness*

We may be able to help if you are:

  • Living in an emergency shelter
  • Fleeing domestic violence
  • Living in a location not meant for human habitation (ex: car, street, tent etc.)

*Homelessness must be verified by a shelter or street outreach team.



Triangle Family Services is committed to assisting Wake County community members in their transition from homelessness to safe, stable, and affordable housing. To do this, we provide direct emergency housing assistance through direct financial support, comprehensive case management, and financial counseling to individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness.
