Each year, the newly inducted president of the Lincoln County Board of Realtors picks a charity that addresses a housing need in our community. This year Debbie Pope chose Hesed House of Hope for their service to the homeless population in Lincoln County. "This issue is close to our hearts and we have witnessed the wonderful ways that Hesed House has done more than just provide a bed for our homeless community. They provide meals, counseling and job skill training. John Hall, the Executive Director, assured us that Hesed House considers it a mission to give a hand up and not a hand out. All of the current residents are actively seeking employment and betterment."

Recently the Board of Realtors gave Hesed House a much needed washer & dryer. Hall took the realtors on a tour of the newly renovated facility, which now has the capability to house 32 residents, including one family room complete with a crib.

Hesed House, located at 100 Ann Gaither Court, just off Lincoln Street in the Oaklawn community, is Lincoln County's only homeless shelter. Hall said the need for help from churches, clubs, individuals and organizations like the Board of Realtors is even greater now since County Commissioners cut Hesed House from the fiscal 2021 budget. The County had give the shelter $10,000 each year since 2017, but this year, it was one of the items that got cut.

Hesed House of Hope is a United Way agency and receives some support from United Way contributions. Much of the support for the shelter comes from area churches. Monetary donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 1633, Lincolnton, NC 28093. The shelter is always in need of specific items, but clothing, shoes etc. need to be donated to the Christian Ministries of Lincoln County. Hesed House partners closely with Christian Ministries to provide basic needs to the homeless currently staying at Hesed House.
