The WayWesX17 Homeless Project was founded by a mother determined to overcome the grief of losing her sons, Waymond II and Wesley Pearce, in a positive way. Instead of succumbing to the sands of grief, she started a social change project focused on helping the homeless. Our organization is 501(c)(3) volunteer-based, and we rely on the support of the community to continue making a difference. Collaboration is critical in our efforts to make a difference, and we welcome volunteers, co-workers, family, friends, other agencies, high school basketball teams, college students, local politicians, churches, and neighbors to assist with donations, packing, and distribution of survival kits for our homeless communities. We are committed to creating a world where homelessness is no longer a burden.
