Wake County, NC : Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County Partners with The Helping Hand Mission to Make A Difference @ The New Bern House


Spring 2012 Issue – Pay it Forward Section (page 44)

“The New Bern House provides a family with stability during times of uncertain transition,” says Nathan “Doc” Harley, Ph.D., assistant director of Helping Hand Mission. “We can house up to 65 residents, where most are small families, so the kitchen plays a vital role in this facility both for our residents and the homeless, who we also serve.”

According to journalist Laura Wilson of the upscale, Wake Living magazine (www.wakeliving.com), The Helping Hand Mission (http://www.helpinghandmission.org/) recently got an upgrade to its kitchen thanks to several members of the Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County. photo: Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County

The Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County is committed to various charity and community service events as a way to support homeownership. So when the opportunity arose for the organization’s Remodelers’ Council to contribute to a worthy cause — upgrading the kitchen at the New Bern House, part of the Helping Hand Mission — the choice was an easy one.

The project involved the New Bern House is a 9,200-square-foot transitional home and food shelter that serves an average of 100 to 300 meals per day to both its residents and those hurt by economic conditions.

Time and years had left its kitchen with holes in the floors and walls, minimal working appliances, limited storage, and an uncomfortable work space. So last fall, the council gave the mission house a significant kitchen upgrade.
