Building the future


The Transformation Exhange was developed to be a collaborative forum where community partners and advocates can come together to support service providers and help meet the needs of those they serve in Wake County.

about Our founder

Frances Bisby has lived in Wake County since 1984 and grew up in eastern North Carolina. She has watched our state’s rural, satellite communities grow in their dependency on metropolitan centers for economic vitality and the continued narrowing of opportunities for families of modest educational attainment and limited prospects for self-propelled workforce development. Her work, and her heart, remains tuned to the needs of communities that are struggling with poverty.

It is her belief that as a community, we have a responsibility to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to thrive and prosper.
