Our New Name: Roof Above
One year has passed since Urban Ministry Center and Men’s Shelter of Charlotte joined forces as a single organization to have a greater impact on our mission to end homelessness. Now we are proud to announce our new name: Roof Above!
We are excited to move forward with a name that describes our combined work in a simple and aspirational way. “Roof Above” tells you what we do. Whether through our shelters or our housing programs, we are committed to providing the safety, protection, and dignity of a roof above. “Roof Above” is also meant to serve as an aspirational call to what we want everyone in our community to have – above all else, the simple comfort of a roof to call one’s own.
In the days ahead, you will see us begin to replace all Urban Ministry Center and Men’s Shelter of Charlotte brands with Roof Above, including our new website – RoofAbove.org – to be fully introduced in the coming months.
