Our church building's education wing is home to the nonprofit Recovery Communities of North Carolina.

Recovery Communities of North Carolina’s (RCNC) mission is to promote addiction recovery, wellness and citizenship through advocacy, education and support. In the summer of 2012, individuals in recovery, their families, friends and allies recognized the need to host an event during September’s National Recovery Month.

As a result of this grassroots effort, the 1st Annual Capital Area Rally for Recovery was held. While preparing for the 2nd Annual Capital Area Rally for Recovery it was decided that a non-profit recovery community organization should be formed for the purpose of sponsoring the annual rally for recovery, as well as other recovery advocacy efforts.

By the spring of 2013, Recovery Communities of North Carolina, Inc. (RCNC) was founded and quickly joined the national recovery advocacy movement by becoming a member of Faces and Voices of Recovery‘s Association of Recovery Community Organizations.

We're proud to house Wake Monarch Academy in our church building's education wing, as well as RCNC. Wake Monarch is a non-profit recovery high school.

Through her own personal struggle with her son, Founder Leah Wright realized the need for support and resources for adolescents struggling with substance use. Through her strong faith and career as an educator, Leah felt led to start a recovery high school where adolescents recovering from substance use disorders could successfully pursue academic, personal, and professional goals in a safe and supportive environment. Jimmy and Leah Wright watched the documentary, Generation Found, and saw how their own son’s struggle might have been different if a recovery high school had been available. Together they developed a team to bring the first recovery high school to the Triangle area of North Carolina.

Mission Work 4 Jesus Ministries

We're pleased to partner and house Mission Work 4 Jesus Ministries, a triangle-based clothing closet that provides clothing, food, and supplies for those in need.  Missionwork 4 Jesus helps a lot of our most vulnerable community members through ministry, support and resources, and has been operating throughout the triangle for nearly two decades. They've worked with numerous organizations throughout the area. They're pleased to partner with Open Table UMC and have a centralized, easily accessible downtown Raleigh location.

Food 4 Thought

Food 4 Thought is non-profit, fully-volunteer led food program that operates from the Open Table UMC kitchen. The organization believes that healthy food is a right, not a privilege. Through a partnership with Trader Joe's grocery stores,  Food 4 Thought is able to deliver hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of healthy, fresh food to those in need throughout our area. Those interested in volunteering with the program are also welcome! Click here to contact them about opportunities or with your questions.
