The mission of Matthews HELP Center is to provide short-term crisis assistance to our neighbors in the Greater Matthews community.
Matthews HELP Center provides assistance with food, shelter, clothing and transportation for those unable to meet life essentials. Our help begins with you!
Important Findings: According to a September 25, 2020 report from the National Council of State Housing Agencies, there are currently an estimated 300,000 -410,000 renter households in North Carolina unable to pay rent and at risk of eviction, and a projected estimated 240,000 eviction filings in North Carolina by January 2021! The need continues to be great!
