In an effort to protect our patients, pantry shoppers, volunteers, and staff, we are closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation.

We are modifying our operations regularly to stay safe and serve our community as best we can.

As of 3/17/20, our building at 1390 Capital Boulevard is open but the doors will be locked.

Only pre-screened patients without family members, children, or guests will be seen.



Beginning 3/30/20, many appointments will be conducted via telemedicine. In person appointments will require a pre-screening. If for some reason you have not received a phone call prior to your clinic appointment, please call our appointment line at (919) 746-0101.

The pharmacy now offers curbside medication pickup. Pickup hours are Monday-Thursday 11 am – 4 pm through July 9th.

Beginning July 13th, pickup hours will be Monday and Wednesday 10 am – 4 pm and Tuesday and Thursday 10 am – 6pm.



Beginning April 17th, the pantry will be closed on Fridays for stocking and cleaning. Operating hours will be Monday-Thursday 8:30-until we have served our maximum of 85 households each day. The pantry is first come, first serve and available to Wake County residents experiencing food insecurity or job loss.

Households may use the pantry once a week during the COVID-19 crisis, but please keep in mind supplies are limited and many neighbors are in need.

 *We are NOT accepting individual or food drive donations at this time. However, if you would like to host a virtual food drive in which you collect monetary donations to help us feed our neighbors in need, please contact*



 The Helen Wright Center for Women is operating with modifications. At this time, we are not receiving new intakes and the women are staying at the shelter 24 hours a day unless they need to leave for work.

We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time as we continue to work to serve our community. We will keep you updated.



We are still taking volunteers if you are feeling well. Please email for more information.

Food Pantry: Volunteer shifts are Monday-Thursday from 8:30 am – 12 pm. A limited number of volunteers are needed each shift to help pack boxes, organize shelves, and break down boxes. Volunteers will be asked health screening questions and provided with masks and gloves. You must be over 18; or 13 years old and over with an adult.

Helen Wright Center for Women: We are currently housing  women at our new center on Bastion Lane as well as the old one on Cabarrus Street in an effort to maintain social distancing. We are currently accepting intakes for emergency shelter. If you are in need of shelter, please call 919-833-0332 or come to the location at 401 W. Cabarrus Street Monday-Friday from 1 pm – 6pm.

If you would like to participate in meal drop-offs, please email

Open Door Clinic: The Open Door Clinic is planning to reopen in phases following the guidelines set by the Governor of North Carolina and the most accurate information we have on COVID-19 and its transmission. The phases will allow us to decide how many people we should allow inside the building at one time. We ask that you please keep an eye on emails (if you are a current volunteer) and social media alerts communicating these reopenings.  We will most likely have different needs for each position.


*Volunteer providers: minimal telehealth opportunities will open in Phase 2

We are currently in need of Spanish-speaking medical interpreters for one remote and one in-person position. Shifts are Monday-Thursday 10 am – 1 pm and 1 pm – 4 pm.

En un esfuerzo por proteger a nuestros pacientes, compradores de despensa, voluntarios y personal, estamos monitoreando de cerca la situación de Covid-19.

Estamos modificando nuestras operaciones regularmente para mantenernos seguros y servir a nuestra comunidad lo mejor que podamos.

A partir del 17/03/20, nuestro edificio en 1390 Capital Boulevard está abierto pero las puertas estarán cerradas.

Solo se verán pacientes seleccionados previamente sin miembros de la familia, niños o invitados.

La farmacia comenzará a recoger los medicamentos en la acera a partir del 1 de abril. Las recogidas estarán disponibles de lunes a jueves de 11 a. M. A 4 p. M. No habrá recogidas nocturnas.


A partir del 17 de abril, la despensa estará cerrada los viernes para almacenamiento y limpieza.

La despensa se entrega por orden de llegada y está disponible para los residentes del condado de Wake que experimentan inseguridad alimentaria o pérdida de empleo.

Los hogares pueden usar la despensa una vez por semana durante la crisis de COVID-19, pero tenga en cuenta que los suministros son limitados y muchos vecinos lo necesitan.

NO estamos aceptando donaciones individuales o de donación de alimentos en este momento.


El Centro Helen Wright para Mujeres está funcionando con modificaciones. En este momento, no estamos recibiendo nuevas ingestas y las mujeres se quedan en el refugio las 24 horas del día a menos que tengan que irse a trabajar.
