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).
Due to a high volume of applicants we are on a waitlist. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we process an unprecedented need in our community.
“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…”

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has prevented us from hosting events as of March 19, 2020, but every day has been eventful at the Day Resource Center since COVID-19 impacted our community. We are here, we are still smiling, we are still helping, we are staying ready, and we are staying safe to help those in need. When event planning is able to commence, it’ll be shared here first! Stay tuned.

The City of Fayetteville North Carolina has shown tremendous support to Connections of Cumberland County in 2020! The City entrusted CCC with $300,000.00 of CARES ACT funds to provide emergency COVID-19 relief for past due rent, mortgage and utility payments from July 2020 to January 2021. To date, CCC has assisted 163 households with maintaining stable housing, impacting a total of 477 City of Fayetteville residents to include women, men, and children. Due to the quick impact CCC has had within the community, The City has added an additional $100,000 for CCC to continue assisting those that applied for COVID Relief assistance in late July, early August. We are honored and humbled to be selected to continue in these efforts.
Thank you City of Fayetteville North Carolina!
