Urban Ministry Inc.http://www.urban-ministry.com/
Our mission is to bring Compassion and Wholeness to the urban poor of Birmingham. We carry out our mission in a variety of ways. Through Assistance Ministries we operate a daily feeding program, distribute food boxes, and provide financial assistance in meeting the costs of utilities and housing. Through our Children's Program we offer after-school care and a summer day camp for children in the fourth through the eighth grade. Through our Joe Rush Center for Urban Mission we do exterior house painting for low-income elderly and disabled persons. In partnership with Kairos Prison Ministry we work in a maximum security prison of the State of Alabama (Donaldson Correctional Facility) with men on death row. Through our Academy for Action Formation we provide opportunities for persons to live out their faithfulness in the world.
