What We Do

Crisis Assistance Ministry is Mecklenburg County’s Lead Agency offering emergency assistance to impoverished families. Specifically, Crisis Assistance Ministry helps families facing financial crisis by: providing for basic needs with rent and utility assistance, clothing, household goods, furniture, beds and appliances; fostering financial stability through partnerships, counseling, and support to give families the tools they need to reach for economic mobility; and educating the community about the realities of poverty in Mecklenburg County.

Volunteer opportunities at Crisis Assistance Ministry are many and diverse, ranging from volunteer opportunities in our Free Store warehouse for families with school age or older children to long-term opportunities for college-age and adults.

Interesting Info

Approximately 15% of Mecklenburg County residents live in poverty. Crisis Assistance Ministry works to prevent homelessness for families in financial crisis.
Preventing homelessness costs only a few hundred dollars per family. Homelessness can cost our community $37,000 per person, per year.
More than 22,000 families were served at Crisis Assistance Ministry last year.
