Presbyterian Urban Ministry

Private landlords are a critical partner in the effort to end homelessness. Many benefit from Housing for New Hope’s expertise when considering a potential homeless tenant or negotiating with a tenant in financial difficulty.

Presbyterian Urban Ministry provides spiritual and financial support to families with children, disabled adults, and seniors threatened with homelessness.

Over the past year, 651 households were aided with emergency assistance totaling $122,000 to help pay for rent, utilities, and medicines.

For more information about Presbyterian Urban Ministry, please contact Sam Whitted, Tenant Advocate, at samw@housingfornewhope.org or 919.220.5601.
