What We Do
We are excited that Urban Ministry Center and Men’s Shelter of Charlotte have officially merged. You will continue to see our identities separate or co-branded until a final identity for our new organization is rolled out in early 2020.
Our newly merged agency is a comprehensive homeless service provider that offers a continuum of care to people experiencing homelessness in Mecklenburg County. On any given day, we serve nearly 1,200 individuals.
The continuum of services covers everything from street outreach, basic services (mail, showers, laundry) and a year-round soup kitchen, an emergency shelter for men, Room in the Inn, rapid rehousing and permanent supportive housing programs. In addition, we offer a substance abuse program that offers transitional housing to men in recovery.
Every service has our mission at the forefront, which is ending homelessness, one life at a time.
