Connections of Cumberland County operates the only walk-in Day Resource Center with case management that serves women and children who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. Our center collaborates with other community partners to bring a variety of services together in one easy-to-access location. Connections’ hours are Tuesday-Thursday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. To reduce volume in the Day Resource Center while we adhere to COVID-19 safety precautions, we are unable to accept walk-in clients at this time. To schedule an appointment to meet with a Case Manager or to inquire about services, please give us a call at (910) 630-0106.
We have received funding from the City of Fayetteville to provide COVID-19 relief for past due rent, mortgage and utility payments. For this funding only, Connections will be able to assist children, women and men. This is a one-time assistance program and the applicant must reside in the city of Fayetteville.These funds are made possible through the Federal Government by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES).
Please contact our office during regular business hours if you are in need of assistance. CARES Act funding is still available to households, within Fayetteville City limits, that have endured hardships due to COVID 19.
“Honestly, if it wasn’t for Connections, I don’t know when or if my life would have turned around. I have been with Connections for a little over a year, and I found them when I became homeless in Fayetteville… I was only able to get into stable housing in Fayetteville because Connections helped pay a part of my deposit and first month’s rent. My children and I are still housed all together and in a safe neighborhood…”

This month we celebrate our partnership with Senior Service America. Through their many programs Senior Service America is committed to improving the lives of Cumberland County’s senior residents. We are excited to be added as a host agency for their Senior Community Service Employment Program. The program places individuals into positions at community agencies in order for them to learn new jobs skills that can eventually be used to get back into the workforce. Through this program Connections welcomes 2 new receptionists at no cost to our agency but a benefit to us all. We are honored to partner with Senior Service America and continue our mission in improving the lives of others!
