We Did It Together

Together, our network of WNC Superheroes have helped so many of our neighbors. Here are some of the needs that were met because of YOU and everyday heroes like you. Thank you for being a hero to someone when they needed it most.

These are some examples of Cases our network has funded. Not every Case is listed here. Sometimes the people we are helping may be in danger or face further harm if details of their Case are posted publicly. In those instances, we fund the Case through reserve funds that we raise through grants and donations made directly to our reserve or operations funds. If you would like more information on how WNC Superheroes funds Cases, please email programs@wncsuperheroes.com

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.
