Letter from our Executive Director


Sharing God's Love with our Community 

Dear Community:

In response to the COVID-19/Coronavirus public health emergency, until further notice, all case management, emergency financial appointments, and education will take place virtually. The helpline will continue to operate at 704-225-0440. Please call United Way at 211 for an updated list for food and clothing assistance.

How can you help UCCAM help our clients? We are requesting significant financial assistance so that we will be prepared for the coming months when out-of-work wage earners will be at most risk for evictions and homelessness. This is a time when we need to come together to support those most at risk. Please go to http://www.unioncrisis.org/donate.aspx to donate now.


Thank you,

Gloria Barrino, Executive Director
