URBAN IMPACT (Northside)
engages inner city youth in various after-school activities including
performing arts, athletics, tutoring, and mentoring for options after they
graduate from high school. Their Urban Missionaries are young people who live
on the Northside so they can be in the neighborhoods of the kids they are
serving. Often serving these Missionaries can be a wonderful way to support the
larger ministry. They are also renovating a church for ministry space and have
other ways to volunteer. They ask interested groups to please fill out the volunteer
form online describing your group’s availability and interests, and someone
will call you with where they can use your help.

LIVING IN LIBERTY (Homewood)
A Living in
Liberty offers food, shelter, clothing, and sometimes creative activities to
women (mostly addicted) who live on the streets. You will see the humanity and
the very real spiritual and physical fight that these downtrodden Homewood
women face. They are addicted, living fix to fix, meal to meal, and often
living in abandoned housing or with a "man" who "cares" for
them. Volunteers may encounter foul language and possible mature
discussions. On the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Saturdays,
from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., teams of two-three
women help with providing and/or serving food, and/or assisting with free
clothing distribution. Teens and older are welcome, if accompanied by a parent.
