NCCJ is a human relations organization. They work to build communities free of bias, bigotry and racism by promoting understanding and respect among all cultures, races and religions.
Together, we can bridge the divide and build communities that better understand how to work and live together. We create respectful and compassionate spaces where people can let down their guard, get comfortable with being uncomfortable, face difficult issues and ask tough questions. These kinds of interactions help communities move to a place of less hostility and greater understanding, acceptance, and collaboration.
The Interactive Resource Center is Guilford County’s only day resource center for people currently facing, experiencing or coming out of homelessness. We use a whole-person approach to address all aspects of the homeless experience. This means we provide everything from fundamental services (showers, laundry, or a mailing address for example) to medical and mental health care, case management and employment services. We meet our guests where they are, gather the resources they need to gain shelter and help them create a new path forward.
