Greensboro Urban Ministry began as a grassroots effort when leaders from a handful of downtown congregations noticed the great disparity and need in our community.  Their goal was simple – to provide the most basic needs of a human being; food and shelter.

Now, more than 50 years later, GUM relies on the kindness and generosity of thousands of supporters to make its services successful.

Over the course of last year, more than 45,000 lives were impacted through the delivery of our community programs and services. It’s not enough to calculate the food served, beds slept in, and assistance distributed. The impact comes in the lives we have touched. By meeting our clients where they are and providing access to a variety of services, they can begin to move toward long-term solutions.
