Helping Meet Basic Needs

Crisis Assistance Ministry helps Mecklenburg County families with life’s basic needs: emergency rent and utility assistance, clothing, household goods, furniture, beds, and appliances. Customers experiencing hunger may also receive referrals to local food providers, federal food support programs, and access to an onsite emergency pantry.

How We Can Help

Emergency Financial Assistance

Assistance for rent and utilities is available in person at our main office or via an online application.

Free Store

The Free Store offers clothing, shoes, and household items free-of-charge to local individuals and families.

Furniture & Appliance Store

Essential furniture and appliances are provided free-of-charge via Crisis Assistance Ministry's Partner Agency network.

FURNITURE & APPLIANCE STORE IS ON THE MOVE!

To better serve customers and donors, Crisis Assistance Ministry’s Furniture & Appliance Store is moving to the agency’s main office at 500-A Spratt Street. The move reunites the agency’s services at one location, increasing convenience for customers and donors and enhancing efficiency for staff and volunteers. 

To accommodate the move, we will pause acceptance of furniture and appliance donations at 333 Dalton Ave after October 16. The Furniture & Appliance Store will resume all operations, including donations, on October 26, 2021 at its new location at 500-A Spratt Street.
