Building a Stronger Raleigh Together is a movement spanning five months and three events with a focus on breaking the cycle of poverty and a fundraising goal of $250,000. The funds will allow Passage Home, the JD Lewis Center and its nonprofit arm, The B.A.G.S Foundation to increase their combined impact by 775 homeless and low-income families and individuals to a total of 3,125. A portion of the proceeds will go towards expanding the JD Lewis Center’s facility, which will have the capacity to serve 1,000 families in Southeast Raleigh.
