Mission Statement

FACES’ mission is a coordinated effort to provide emergency financial assistance, information and referral in the communities of Fuquay-Varina and Willow Spring, North Carolina, for those experiencing crises situations related to shelter, utilities and other basic human needs.

Description

Since 1964, families in Fuquay-Varina have received emergency financial help from our church-supported emergency relief organization. Once called Fuquay Family Aid, our current non-profit, Family and Community Empowerment Services (FACES), continues helping local residents who are in distress.

FACES’ mission is a coordinated effort to provide emergency financial assistance, information and referral in the communities of Fuquay-Varina and Willow Spring, North Carolina, for those experiencing crises situations related to shelter, utilities and other basic human needs.

Today, FACES is helping more people who have lost jobs and simply cannot find work, or have reduced work hours. Many come in to apply for financial aid because they have experienced a major life-altering family or medical problem.

FACES is solely supported by donations from area churches and individuals and the dedication of many community volunteers.
