Homelessness

With committed, loving volunteers and financial donations, Providence UMC supports the homeless in Mecklenburg County.  You can make a difference!  Our homeless ministries are open to any member or guest who would like to volunteer.  We welcome mission partnerships with businesses, too.   

Seasonal Opportunity:

Room in the Inn

Orchestrated through Urban Ministry Center and started by Jeremiah Group, this program keeps homeless people from freezing on cold winter nights.  Providence UMC invites 14 of our homeless neighbors into our church home two nights a week during the winter months.  During this time we prepare meals for them, offer our support, and provide a warm place to sleep.  Providence provides comfort, meals, and shelter for approximately 500 people per season through the Room in the Inn program.
