'If you look for God, He is there.
Some people say that Jesus doesn't help you pay your bills
I'm here to tell you He does.
Jesus is what this non-profit is based on and runs their mission . . . "
~ Homeless Fuquay-Varina man who was helped to find a clean, safe living situation
"We were in the hole with no way out.
I was referred to FACES, and my life has changed.
Ever since FACES helped me pay an overdue rental bill,
things have slowly but surely looked up."

FACES Is Counting on You Virtually to Help Us Meet Our Goals in Reality
FACES continues to work to help those in the community in times of crisis. Some may believe that the entire year has been a crisis, but we continue to believe in the beauty and kindness of others and the generosity of others especially when helping those who are in the most need. The pandemic has sent us into uncharted territory, and we must find creative ways to meet our goals. The Jingle Bell Raffle is a way for you to help us with those goals.

Since 1964, families in Fuquay-Varina have received emergency financial help from our church-supported emergency relief organization. Once called Fuquay Family Aid and Southern Wake Faith Community in Action (SWFCA), our current non-profit, Family and Community Empowerment Services (FACES), continues helping local residents who are in distress.
FACES’ desire is to provide emergency financial assistance, information, and referral in the communities of Fuquay-Varina and Willow Spring (27592), North Carolina, for those experiencing crises situations related to shelter, utilities, and other basic human needs.
Today, FACES is helping more people who have lost jobs and simply cannot find work, or have reduced work hours. Many come in to apply for financial aid because they have experienced a major life-altering family or medical problem.
FACES is solely supported by donations from area churches, businesses, and individuals and the dedication of many community volunteers.
