Our story

The Founding of FACET:

Juliette Wilson’s love for people and human kind led her to found the Legend’s Luncheon in in March of 2008. This annual Women’s History Month event started as an outreach ministry for women who are transitioning out of the Center of Hope, the Salvation Army’s Women’s Homeless Shelter. The ministry currently supports women who are transitioning out of the YWCA’s Families Together Program and the Harvest Center of Charlotte. Juliette conceived the idea for this ministry after watching a program on 20/20 one Friday night in January of 2007 that featured homelessness in New Jersey. After watching the program, she felt God asking her “so what are you going to do about it”? Shortly thereafter, Juliette called the Center of Hope to find out how she could be of support and learned that their greatest need was for items to assist women transitioning out of the shelter into their own residence. The luncheon was named after Oprah Winfrey’s Legend’s Ball to encourage the transitioning women to believe that even though they have had a setback, they too can become a legend. Luncheon supporters donate new household items and gift cards that are presented to the women who are transitioning during the event. Due to the profound impact of the Legend’s Luncheon and the desire to further the cause, in 2015 Juliette brought together of group of supportive like-minded women and Faith in Action Community and Educational Transition (FACET) Services, Inc. was formed in 2016 to build on the mission of supporting homeless women in their transition toward a life of independence. The focus of FACET has expanded to include mentoring and training to ensure the success of the women we support. In March of 2018, FACET became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
