    The purpose of the Neighbors Helping Neighbors have a “Brighter Christmas” is to make the community
    aware of special needs that are usually not addressed by existing service agencies. Thanks to the
    generosity and kindness of Randolph County citizens, many people have received assistance over the years

    When a letter is received, the committee will review each request and determine which member is most
    appropriate to be assigned as the lead person. The committee will meet each week to review the progress of
    each request and its findings. The identity of the applicants, unless consent is given, will remain confidential.
    The Randolph HUB will publish stories based on applicant letters to show potential donors what special
    needs exist in the community and how the needs should best be met. Applicants will be informed in writing of

  • Celebrating 25 Years

    Celebrating 25 Years

    Celebrate 25 Years of Serving Randolph County with us!

    CUOC serves all of Randolph County with services for family in financial crisis. Services include: a food pantry including remote food distributions to nine locations away from our building to families and individuals who may not be able to come into Asheboro to get the food they need.  Typically, each household receives enough food to last one week; medical assistance by loaning various types of medical equipment for as long as someone may need it, assisting with emergency needs for life sustaining medications, and assistance with research and completing paperwork required to apply for on-going RX needs through indigent pharmacy programs. We operating a Neighbors Helping Neighbors program that helps elderly, poverty and disabled families receive help with minor car and home repairs so they can remain independent as well as other basic needs not covered by other local programs. CUOC helps with utility, rent, and mortgage payments when people are in crisis due to circumstances outside their control. Through our voucher programs we help with clothing for children and adults when they can’t afford to purchase them, and, household and furniture items when a family is able to go from homelessness to rental property, has had to flee domestic violence, or has to move for reasons outside their control and other crisis situations. We offer financial literacy training open to our clients and the general public. In addition to the "normal" areas of assistance, it would not be out of the ordinary for us to purchase work boots so someone can start a new job, pay for a final exam when a student has a promise of a job once they take the final exam, or to provide a gas voucher so someone can get to work until they receive their first paycheck.  CUOC does provide assistance to the homeless providing emergency shelter and transitional housing for single parent homeless families through Project Independence and an occasional "bus ticket home" or shelter referral for single adults.

     In our 25 years of service 32,467 Randolph County families have received help at least once while in financial crisis.  Some of our families in poverty will and do get help on a monthly basis if they don’t have the income to provide food for themselves or their families.  We touch lives over 25,000 times each year which means someone has food for a week, someone has utilities for a month, someone receives financial literacy training for a lifetime, someone receives homeless assistance for a "season" of their lives and when all is said and done, in a year at least 25,000 times, someone has had help they need! We use between 22,000 – 25,000 volunteer hours each year to support our programs.

    To celebrate all CUOC has accomplished in the past 25 years, and to say thank you to our donors, voluteers, shoppers, and employees, we will host a party in downtown Asheboro in Bicennial Park on Saturday, September 7th from 2pm to 6pm. Donors and voluteers are welcome to RSVP to patticuoc@triad.rr.com before Aug. 30, 2019 at noon to secure a ticket for Lexington BBQ meal. Games, entertainment, and fun for all ages. Bring your own chair.
