Services & Programs

An Overview

The Urban Ministry Center is an interfaith organization that serves poor and homeless people — our neighbors – with love, compassion and tangible help by providing the following services and programs.

Basic Services including a Soup Kitchen, showers, laundry, mail, counselling with referrals, and more to help people survive and eventually take steps to find employment or permanent housing. Nurse and dental van for homeless neighbors only. 
Permanent Supportive Housing through our HousingWorks program at Moore Place and scattered sites around Charlotte, benefits the chronically homeless.
Temporary Shelter from December through March is provided with the assistance of 130+ congregations and organizations coordinated by Room In The Inn.
 Enrichment Programs in our CommunityWorks department help us build relationships through art, soccer, gardening, singing, and advocacy.
Substance Abuse Treatment provided through our SABER Program helps men with substance abuse treatment, housing and supportive services.
Community Education connects congregations and groups to a better understanding of our neighbors and the issues surrounding homelessness and poverty.
All of these programs rely on community support (time and resources) to succeed. We invite you to learn about each and find out how you can help.
