Urban Ministries of Wake County
Urban Ministries has safety protocols in place to keep everyone healthy. If a volunteer does not feel healthy, in any way, they are advised to stay at home. Urban Ministries is also limiting the number of bodies in a particular location, like their food pantry. They are careful to consider social distancing. While they used to provide inside services, they now provide curbside services for their clients. They also currently have remotes opportunities.
Since 1981, Urban Ministries of Wake County has responded to their neighbors in crisis by providing basic needs: food, medicine, and shelter. They strive to look beyond the moment, helping their clients, patients, shoppers, and guests build a higher quality of life. They engage their community to serve and advocate on behalf of those affected by poverty by providing food and nutrition, promoting health and wellness, and by laying the foundations of home. Their Volunteer Services provide a welcoming environment to connect dedicated and skilled volunteers to collaborate with staff in elevating their organization's reach to their neighbors in need.
