United Ministries

United Ministries of Greenville: United Ministries is a direct service agency focused on solutions to poverty and homelessness. United Ministries’ mission is to provide life changing opportunities and advocacy for people in our community who lack education or employment skills, who are in financial crisis, who are homeless, and those who can help. United Ministries accomplishes this mission through four programs:

  • Emergency Assistance provides utility and rent assistance, and funds for life-saving medication. The program also operates a food pantry.
  • Place of Hope, a day shelter for the homeless, provides showers, laundry, lockers, and telephones on a walk-in basis to participants. Case management is provided to address the major issues that keep a person homeless: substance abuse, mental illness, disability, and lack of identification papers.
  • Adult Education provides GED training from staff and volunteer tutors. A study hall approach is used to provide an environment that removes as many barriers as possible to the student. Once a student passes the GED, he/she is awarded a High School Equivalency Diploma that is in equal standing with a high school diploma, and is accepted by colleges and employers.
  • Employment Readiness provides employment assistance through a week-long class focusing on employment issues ranging from resume building to work place etiquette. One-on-one counseling is provided by employment specialists to those who complete the class. The advanced program provides tuition for specific job training to qualified participants.
