Homeless Logo TEAM workz

The logo for TEAM Workz was designed by Novae Design Group of Southern Pines. 

After months of development and legal maneuvering, an organization has launched to address homelessness in Moore County.

The nonprofit TEAM Workz (the first part of the name is an acronym for Together Everyone Accomplishes More) was founded by Cliff Brown, a retired sergeant with the state Department of Corrections and former president of the State Employees Association. Brown said The Pilot’s report on local homeless encampments stirred interest in the plight of unsheltered residents, prompting him to convene a series of community meetings that led to the formation of TEAM Workz.

It's wonderful to see people come together to address the homeless populations in this community, It's long past due.

While appearing well intentioned...this will encourage further "migration" to Moore County and once started cannot be undone.
