Review for CHARLOTTE CENTER FOR URBAN MINISTRY INC, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer weekly at UMC as a counselor. The homeless are able to get help with obtaining ID, food referrals, health care referrals, legal problems, social work referrals, transportation resources,and an endless variety of personal and related issues. They are not able to get such help so easily from other agencies. UMC has a variety of connections with other agencies which facilitate referrals. There are also a variety of programs to help homeless people feel needed and valued, such as the choir, gardening, art, and sports. Some of the more basic needs such as laundry, showers, bathrooms, meals, and a safe place to sleep at night during cold weather are offered by UMC. It is a very effective, efficient agency.
