Vision

Union County Crisis Assistance Ministry’s (UCCAM) vision is one of a caring community where basic needs are provided so that all residents can achieve and enjoy economic self-sufficiency.

History

In early 1982, a Task Force on Emergency Assistance was appointed by United Way’s Union County Social Planning Committee to address problems in the delivery of emergency financial services to families in crises. The major problems centered on some people falling between the cracks while others abused the available programs. A method of coordinating the programs of local organizations and churches was indicated and the idea of a local Crisis Assistance Ministry was born. The Union County Crisis Assistance Ministry program was developed based on United Way providing administrative funding, with local churches providing direct assistance funds, which could be used to help local families in need of emergency assistance.

Initially, The Salvation Army in Charlotte operated the program. After almost two years’ operation under The Salvation Army, Crisis Assistance Ministry became a separate agency, incorporated in Union County in 1985.

 

 

The mission of Union County Crisis Assistance Ministry’s Crisis Intervention Program is to provide a bridge from crisis to stability for individuals in our community who are at risk of losing their most basic needs of shelter and food during personal or family crisis.
