Refuge is a Church at Charlotte outreach partnering with Urban Ministry Center and Charlotte Family Housing to serve our neighbors.

Room In The Inn:

Church at Charlotte has committed to provide meals for many of the nights that shelter is provided at Providence United Methodist Church (PUMC) . Please prayerfully consider being part of this outreach. Church at Charlotte will again be partnering with PUMC to provide food and shelter for homeless men and women during the winter months through Room In The Inn. This ministry provides emergency shelter during the coldest winter months. There are Room In The Inn sites scattered across Charlotte; we gratefully partner with PUMC hosting at their location, 2810 Providence Road (corner of Sharon Lane and Providence Rd).

The Room In The Inn program operates from December through March. For available dates and more detailed information, please access the signup link here.
