What Do We Offer?
While many of the individuals served by RE faced housing and job crises, some also required personal development and accountability to help end the cycle of desperation and instability brought on by personal choices and a lack of community resources. Responding to these crises and the growing need for community support, RE has established specialized programs and services to help educate, equip, and empower those who desire to courageously transform their lives through practical solutions coupled with accountability.
These programs and services are offered at the Ripple Effects Empowerment Center (REE:Center) located in Rocky Mount.

Demonstrating love and developing people.
The Bridge, a transitional housing program, was established in 2017 to help transition individuals and families from homelessness and unstable home environments into a productive and sustainable life.
The Bridge focuses on connecting an individual’s potential to their purpose, equipping them with the tools and resources needed to become independent resulting in their being positioned to achieve their highest potential.
Currently, RE has five properties, four single family homes, and one multi-family home, allowing us to address the housing need coupled with programming that strategically assist with personal development, family relationships, health and wellness, career readiness, and financial literacy.
Demonstrating love and developing people. Doing life.
