ABOUT US 

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.
