We minister our homeless to overcome the barriers in becoming self sufficient through sharing the love of Christ. Our program is open to anyone in the four county areas in need. This includes Catawba, Alexander, Caldwell, and Burke Counties.
Impact: The targeted population is current homeless individuals who need assistance getting off the streets into housing and productive employment. We provide assistance with food, housing, and prescription medication. We strive to be the first county in the United States to eliminate the homeless problem facing America.
Our ministry is supported only by the generosity of local volunteers, churches, and organizations. We are solely funded by donations.
