About Project CATCH

Our purpose is to equip families experiencing homelessness in Wake County with resources and services to nurture the healthy growth and development of their children.

Do you see the smiling face above? That's why we do what we do. Children experiencing homelessness are the most vulnerable in our society, yet they go unseen, unheard, and underserved. That's why The Salvation Army started Project CATCH. These children's hopes and dreams are in jeopardy of going unrealized. But we see them, hear them, and strive to empower them.

Our Gallery

 

Crammed into a hotel room with their parents and siblings, the children we serve worry about things like the house cleaning staff banging on their door early in the morning and keeping their voices down as not to disturb the people on the other side of their paper thin walls. This is their story in pictures.
