Legal Aid of North Carolina’s Homeless Prevention Project volunteers call it a labor of love. Since the project began in 2014, volunteers have faithfully taught more than 3,000 residents during one-hour classes at Crisis Assistance Ministry.
Wayfinders NC, formerly known as Bruce Irons Camp Fund, provides year-round enrichment and summer camp experiences for local students. A visit to the Free Store makes those adventures possible for families already struggling to make ends meet.
Crisis Assistance Ministry recently celebrated the role of volunteers in preventing homelessness and preserving dignity for struggling families in Mecklenburg County. In the most recent fiscal year, caring community members served over 43,000 hours, a gift of time valued at more than $1 million.
