What We Do

The  mission  of Crisis Assistance Ministry is to  provide assistance  and advocacy for people in financial crisis, helping them move toward self-sufficiency.

As Mecklenburg County’s Lead Agency offering emergency assistance to low-income families, Crisis Assistance Ministry provides for basic needs with rent and utility assistance, clothing, household goods, furniture, beds, and appliances; fosters financial stability through partnerships, counseling, and support to give families the tools they need to reach for economic mobility; and educates the community about the realities of poverty in Mecklenburg County.

How We Are Impacted:
As the economic impact of COVID-19 continues to widen, more families will need help to afford rent, utilities, and other basic needs.

How You Can Help:
In order to meet those needs, additional financial resources will be needed.
