NGCM GOALS AND MISSION
OUR MISSION: To provide assistance while instilling hope and encouragment in a dignified, supportive, faith-centered manner to families and individuals in Greenville County, S.C. experiencing a crisis situation.
History: Having been established in 1983, we have evolved into a Ministry supported by generosity of our local churches, businesses, charitable organizations and individuals in our community. This support comes in the form of in-kind donations of food, clothing, and financial contributions. Our Ministry is non-denominationals and non-discriminatory, with an operational work force of volunteers coming from all walks of life.
WHAT WE PROVIDE: Qualifying individuals and families may recieve food and clothing every other month, the amount of which is determined by the number of individuals within the household. The amount of food received is approximately a one-week supply. Limited funds are also available for assistance with rent and ulitilites. These individuals must live within our boundaries and provide picture identifcation and proof of residency. We also provide contact information regarding other resources available in our area that they may find helpful. Life skills classes are also part of our services and are required for financial assistance. Our goal is to provide assistance along with the tools needed to regain self-sufficiency.
WHOM WE SERVE: Our services area encompasses 7 zip codes and 250 square miles of Northern Greenville County which includes some of the more impoverished areas. Our services are targeted towards residents in Northern Greenville County who qualify under EFAP income eligibilty guidelines. In 2019 we served over 3,500 families and approximately 9,000 indivuduals (of which 32% were children.)
We would welcome a call to schedule a visit to our Ministry during the hours of operation.
