We had a great time with Work on Wilmington this past Saturday! Volunteers from several local businesses, led by our friend Cheryl from StarNews, weeded, painted benches in our serenity garden, laid mulch, and stained our picnic table and shelter at the Sgt. Ashley Center. These outdoor spaces have been especially important for our Veterans during the pandemic, and we are so grateful for all who helped to spruce up the property!

While we have had to limit indoor volunteer opportunities, there has been no shortage of outdoor projects to keep visiting volunteer groups busy! Service groups are an important part of our volunteer family that help us tackle odd jobs and projects that keep our programs and campuses running smoothly, like washing our fleet of vans or maintaining the community garden. In honor of #NationalVolunteerAppreciationWeek, we salute all of our wonderful volunteer groups! Pictured: NCINO, INC., Compass Pointe NC, UNCW Sustainability, and TKE at UNC-Wilmington.

The value of 1 hour of volunteer time is equivalent to $27.20, according to Independent Sector; but if you ask us, each of the 14,577 hours served at Good Shepherd Center in 2020 is priceless!

Déjà vu: Affordable housing study tells officials what most already know, so now what?

Check out this interview on WHQR with our Executive Director, Katrina Knight, and other housing advocates on the Joint City/County Workforce Housing Advisory Committee. Katrina is a member of the committee and the Chair of the Cape Fear Housing Coalition.

The findings of a recent housing study surprised few: the city of Wilmington and New Hanover County are verging on a housing affordability crisis. But advocates say the report may act as a catalyst for new housing policies in the region.

Today the newest class of Correctional Officers for Pender County spent the morning at Good Shepherd learning about homelessness and the services that we provide.

Wilmington Symphony to host Food Drive at February concert On Saturday, February 23rd at 7:30 p.m. in the Wilson Center, the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra will be hosting a food drive. Audience members are invited to bring donated food to be collected inside the lobby prior to the concert that evening. This is a collaborative effort between the Wilmington Symphony and local food banks including Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, Good Shepherd, and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. Concert-goers who donate food items will be entered in a drawing to win one Season Subscription for the 2019-20 Masterworks Series. The drawing will be from the stage at the beginning of the concert. The Wilmington Symphony’s local effort is part of the national Orchestras Feeding America initiative originated when the League of American Orchestras first joined forces with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, in 2009. More than 215 orchestras in all 50 states participated in an unprecedented coordinated effort by collecting and donating food to their local food assistance agency or food bank within Feeding America’s network of more than 200 food banks and 60,000 agencies. Since then, 450 League member orchestras have participated in the annual effort. www.wilmingtonsymphony.org
I will be homeless one day next week....I am in KY now, however I am gonna take a bus from Lexington to Wilmington NC. I've heard they have good resources for homeless there. I am disabled with many spinal and orthopedic injuries. I will likely die if stuck on the streets. Does anyone have knowledge of the quality of help or resources for the homeless in Wilmington?
