The Help Center NC has been on the front lines of the war against poverty and hunger in our community. Hand and Hand with our partner agencies, we are creating lasting transformational change. Every dollar donated to The Help Center NC goes towards ending hunger by feeding the poor and provide spiritual support to families that are in a crisis situation.

The Help Center NC Mission – The Help Center NC was established in 2016, for the purpose of sharing the Gospel, advocating for the poor, elderly, children and their families by providing the tools needed for families to become self-sufficient through our training and educational programs. We are a community ministry that made the decision not to focus on one particular community but to sacrificially help those in need by serving the 4 county area (Franklin, Vance, Warren and Granville) in response to the vision that God gave our ministry. Our program design will assist with food, housing referrals, resources to enhance the physical, social, emotional, and economic health of our poor and homeless citizens.

The Help Center NC Philosophy – Our strategy programs builds on our mission and vision of the organization to meet the basic human needs which include public human services activities that strive to accomplish the following goals: Monthly mobile feeding, summer feeding and enrichment activities for our youth. Also, provide food baskets and support services for our elderly, countywide. In addition, we will process community information and referral services to reduce the duplication of services, and enhance communication between those in need and the available resources. We believe our program will not only meet the basic human needs but spiritual needs that will help move families from poverty to self-sufficiency.

ABOUT The Help Center NC

  • For over 20 years Twanna J. Jones passion has been to help others. The Help Center NC was created from a deep desire to help those in desperate need. The Help Center NC was established in 2016 Twanna J. Jones and her family, after seeing that poverty, hunger and despair was clearly evident in her community and the surrounding counties. The Help Center NC is the result of a simple passion to help those in need and to “Transform a Community for Christ.”

    Where We Started
  • This ministry will feed people in the Vance, Granville, Franklin, and Warren counties area to residents who without the mobile feeding program, summer enrichment feeding camp, and senior support services would go hungry. The help Center is expected to fed over 500 people per month, including the elderly and children. Clothing and other donated supplies are also available to those in need. Our programs designed offers Mobile Food Pantry, Senior Support Services, Resource ReferralTraining Center, and Summer Youth Enrichment programs.

    Where We Are
  • The Help Center NC has been instrumental in helping hundreds rise from crisis situations, and with proper funding, we plan on strategically expanding our outreach into other communities. But, we can’t do it alone, we need your help. Tragedy and despair do not discriminate, which is why all us must work together to make a difference.

Together We Can Transform a Community For Christ

  • My experience with sharing my time and energy to help out at The Help Center by filing help sacks has been amazing. It really hits at the essence of what it means to give back to your community.
