MEETING PLACE Overview
Target demographics: homeless men, women, and children, families in the local Burke County area
Direct beneficiaries per year: In 2010, The Mission began to look at homelessness as a problem for families and women since Burke County had no options for them. We have begun The FACES program for families and are currently working with the community to provide temporary emergency sheltering for women at Oak Hill UMC. This project will lead to a permanent women's emergency shelter. To date the Meeting Place Mission has assisted over 150 different men and have had over 10,000 night stays
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: With 3 hours, a volunteer could work with us to ready a home for a new family, work with an existing family - helping with homework, menu planning, etc. They could spend time with our clients visiting and listening.
Geographic areas served: Burke County, NC
