What We Do

WNC Superheroes funds one-time, urgent needs for people in crisis. While western NC has many organizations that seek long- term solutions to homelessness, domestic and sexual violence, and financial security, those organizations always have clients with urgent needs that traditional funding sources do not meet. These kind of one-time needs can throw a family into long-term financial turmoil. WNC Superheroes seeks to end that cycle by addressing the immediate need.

We work with established non-profit partners throughout the community to identify and respond to individual needs. These partners include Our VOICE, Helpmate, My Sister’s Place, Arms Around ASD, Pisgah Legal, Homeward Bound, S.T.E.P., ABCCM, and others. Through these partner agencies, clients in urgent need are identified. The case is posted on WNC Superheroes.com, shared on social media sites, emailed and texted to Superheroes supporters. Once the need has been funded, typically within just a few days, the Partner Agencies work with the client to address both the immediate and long-term needs.

How Does it Work?


WNC Superheroes has a simple mission: To address acute needs before they become long-term problems. Today, a large portion of the western North Carolina community lives on the financial edge, unable to save money for an emergency or even make ends meet.  Often, when an acute problem arises, it needs to be solved quickly to prevent further harm. 


Superheroes addresses these needs by using the power of crowd funding to allow many people making small gifts to have an enormous impact. No one should have to face years of struggle due to a one-time need. This kind of emergency crisis intervention can make all the difference to families in our region.
