Non-Profits You Can Support at the WW Fall Show

About Annie’s Hope:

Annie’s Hope Center for Growing and Healing (a 501 c3) was founded by Rev. Abby Catoe in 2017. Annie’s Hope Center seeks to serve women and children survivors of domestic violence providing long-term transitional housing and resources for healing from the trauma of violence. Residents of Annie’s Hope Center will have access to services such as psychological counseling, medical services, therapeutic healing activities such as yoga, art and mindfulness practices. Residents will live at the Center for a minimum of one -year while they heal. As residents, they will also learn entrepreneurial skills from a variety of enterprises with which the Center will engage; gardening, beekeeping and honey sales, body products made from herbs grown on-premises. The Center is currently under construction on a rural farm in Yadkin County. Funding is needed to complete construction of the home. 

We opened a Thrift Shop to help raise funds for the construction. It is located at 5365B Robinhood Road in Wiinston-Salem. Our hours are Wednesday to Saturday 10-6.

About the Shalom Project:

The Shalom Project develops programs that challenge the cycle of poverty in our community with a spirit of inclusion, compassion and justice. We serve the immediate needs of our community through the following programs:

  • Medical Clinic provides primary care needs and a licensed pharmacist fills prescriptions from our doctors at no cost
  •  Food Pantry and Clothing Closet
  • Welcome Table offers a nutritious, weekly meal for the community for no cost

The Shalom Project wants to make a lasting difference to the poverty situation in Winston-Salem in addition to the programs we run to assist people with immediate needs. We have chosen to focus our efforts in two areas: assisting families as they build permanent pathways out of poverty through our Flourish Program and building a healthier community around a neighborhood thoroughfare with physical improvements though the Peters Creek Community Initiative (PCCI).

  • Flourish is a high-impact poverty reduction model designed to serve un/underemployed female heads of households, living in financial insecurity. Flourish fosters long-term success, personal resourcefulness, adaptability, optimism, confidence, self-esteem, and mindfulness in its participants.    
  • PCCI’s current efforts are focused on bringing affordable housing to the corner of Peters Creek Parkway and Academy Street.
