The focus of Ricky's Hope Incorporated is to assist individuals that are currently attempting to leave a domestic violence situation. As a start-up organization we offer clothing, food referrals, toiletry items and furniture referrals. Our most important and vital connection is the ability to refer each person to larger organizations such as InterAct of Wake County and local shelters for men, women and teenagers. Our goal is to open transitional homes that will allow individuals a smoother transition once they leave other programs.
At this time we also assist the homeless giving out supply bags and snack bags to women and men in the Raleigh area. These bags contain hygiene items that are needed. Our goal is to make an impact on individual lives.
Ricky's Hope Incorporated/ Saving Grace garnished our name from Warren G. “Ricky” Cox. He was the brother of the organizations owner. Ricky battled drug addiction for many years. Sadly in 2003, Ricky was found murdered in his home. The name of this organization comes from a man of great strength and struggle. Our owner wanted him to be the forefront of the “why should we help those in need”. She also wanted to bring honor to the name and memory of a brother she loved dearly, and leave a legacy to the grandchildren he never had a chance to see
