The world is in the midst of a mental health crisis. Anxiety, depression and other issues are impacting that live of our neighbors – what can we do?
Urban Alliance engages professional counselors, pastors, churches, programs and ministries that are facing the challenges of helping people struggling with mental health. Through Charis, an initiative launched to specifically address mental health needs, UA hopes to not only get resources to people with mental health needs, but to encourage and equip those who help their communities address this crisis.
How We Make an Impact
We provide churches and organizations in our network with peer groups, training, toolkits, consultation, grants, supplies and volunteers to build stronger food pantries, community meal sites, clothing banks, transitional living facilities, sober houses and other basic needs programs.
