Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, Inc. (WARM)
Since 1996, Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, Inc. (WARM) has been making home repairs, building accessibility upgrades such as wheelchair ramps for elderly, disabled, and other low-income homeowners in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender Counties. The goal is to improve the safety and accessibility so that residents can age in place, live as independently as possible, and hold onto the biggest asset they have. The work is completed almost entirely by volunteers, hundreds of whom flock to the coast on summer mission trips. With a combination of private and public funding, WARM has grown tremendously since its inception - from serving 4 households in 1997 to 78 in 2013.
WARM is a member of the North Carolina Housing Coalition because they realize the importance of the work that NCHC is doing at the policy level to preserve and create affordable housing. The people WARM serves need a voice, and NCHC provides a united voice for low-income people all over our state.
