Fed. Sheltered. Safe.

WE site shelters keep more men and women safe on the coldest nights of the year.

From Dec. 1 through March 31 each year, Greensboro Urban Ministry partners with congregations to provide 70 more shelter beds for homeless men and women. These Weaver Extension (WE) sites are keeping more people fed, sheltered and safe this winter.

The cost for Urban Ministry to provide the Weaver Extension (WE) program will be approximately $77,400 this winter. Your contributions to Urban Ministry provide funding for WE site expenses, including staff and transportation. Urban Ministry also contracts with an outside agency, Turning Point 180, to expand our case management capacity at our WE sites. This allows all the men, women and families in Urban Ministry’s care this winter to benefit from this one-on-one support, advocacy and accountability.

For only $70, you can provide shelter and support for one WE guest for an entire week. You can make a critical contribution to this important work here.

Referrals to WE sites are made only through Greensboro Urban Ministry’s Weaver House.
