Mission

Urban Ministries of Wake County is a non-profit human service organization that alleviates the effects of poverty in Wake County by meeting people's basic needs for food, shelter, and healthcare, providing services that promote self-sufficiency and building awareness of the issues of poverty within the larger community by leveraging financial support with volunteers and in-kind contributions.


Why volunteer?
Urban Ministries of Wake County accomplishes its mission through the dedication of some 30 staff members and nearly 1,000 volunteers. Representing 97% of our workforce, volunteers are vital to our three core programs: the Food and Nutrition Program, the Helen Wright Center for Women, and the Open Door Clinic.

Our goal is to have 1,000 active volunteers each year to assist us in providing services to those seeking help. With a rising client population we will continually need and recruit excellent, hospitable, dependable, and punctual volunteers. We can not have an impact on our community without our volunteers.
