Helping Neighbors find Homes
Urban Ministry Center is one of my favorite non-profits in charlotte. they work with their neighbors to end homelessness. not only are they selflessly helping the community, they have multiple different avenues of work for neighbors. many of the neighbors participate in ArtWorks 945, GardenWorks 945, StreetSoccer 945, Voices of Love Choir or any of their other outlets. they provide alternative means to end homelessness. it's not just about putting someone in a home, its about helping them succeed and by participating in these 945 avenues, they can express themselves and show charlotte their talents. i recently visited UMC to take some pictures for them for an upcoming project and like my previous visits, i was heartily welcomed and had a great experience photographing the neighbors and volunteers.
