Back in 1995, when a young 7-year old daughter went out to eat one day with her father and mother they encountered a homeless man outside the restaurant asking for money or food. The daughter wanted to know why the man didn't have money or food. Not having a good answer the father did not how to respond. This spurred the father to find an answer for his daughters question.
He researched and found a national program called Room In The Inn. That man was Rick Gilbert and since then, and for the last 24 years, Rick and his family have worked tirelessly on behalf of the homeless through Room In The Inn. They instituted Room In The Inn's Winter Shelter Program in Mint Hill, North Carolina. This program provides safe shelter, warm meals, and fellowship for people struggling with homelessness during the coldest months of the year; in this area, December through March.
Rick had always wanted to do more and through his passion to help serve others he created Home Again Foundation, Inc.
“Hi I'm resident T and my son K. When I first was blessed with the privilege to become acquainted with Home Again Foundation they provided me with light in my darkest hour. I went from pregnant and sleeping in my car to a furnished 2 bedroom cottage I will forever be grateful for. It couldn't have come at a better time. This has been the first year of the rest of my life. I am so happy to be apart of the family. Thank you so much for everything that you have done and the things to come.
I am Home Again.
T & K.”
