At Urban Ministries of Wake County, we engage our 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.
Poverty continues to affect more than 90,000 people living in Wake County. You can make a difference in the lives of thousands by becoming an advocate of Urban Ministries.
Urban Ministries serves over 24,000 people each year that are living in poverty in our very own community.
