Fifth Street addresses the needs of the homeless, the hungry, and the impoverished. 704-872-4045

Fifth Street Ministries offers a variety of services to the homeless, the impoverished and the working poor. For two decades, individuals and families have been served in a variety of ways. From addressing the needs of the homeless to providing sanctuary to victims of domestic violence, thousands of individuals have been assisted. The programs housed under the umbrella of Diakonos are successful because of invaluable community support through exceptional volunteerism, the donation of clothing, food and household items, and financial contributions.

Night Shelter: The starting point for those coming into our program, with the exception of families.  Evaluation of particular needs and empowerment to develop the best course of action to attain short, intermediate and long term goals begins.  Whether it be continued education, referral to substance abuse and/or mental health treatment, life skills training - or a variety of other options to best address the individual  issues, opportunity is given as each step is accomplished.

Transitional Housing:  Some guests qualify for transitional housing after meeting benchmarks designed individually. When a guest is employed, a portion of the monthly income must be placed  into a savings account to be used towards expenses necessary to be satisfied before moving into permanent housing.  Educational programs offered on-site are required. Credit counseling, budgeting, job training, parenting, AA/NA meetings, etc. are incorporated weekly into the program and requires mandatory participation by those enrolled in Transitional Housing.  For those unable to work, reasonable and attainable goals are set and monitored closely.
