Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds support projects and programs that meet families’ basic needs, help our neighbors pursue economic mobility, and engage the community in understanding the impact of poverty in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
Keeping our volunteers, customers, and employees safe is our #1 priority during these unprecedented times. In order to do that, Crisis Assistance Ministry has implemented several measures, including a virtual safety training and an online health self-assessment. In order to ensure you are able to receive the training and the assessment, individual volunteers and volunteer teams will need to create an account in our Volunteer Portal.
