Why We Serve

The Staff and Board of Directors of The Harvest Center of Charlotte are motivated to serve by Christ’s words in Matthew 25: "For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. If you’ve done it to the least of these, you’ve done it to Me."

Whom we Serve

The Harvest Center of Charlotte serves men, women, and children in the Charlotte area who are impacted by poverty, unemployment, and homelessness.

How We Serve

The Harvest Center of Charlotte has a three pronged approach to serving those in need. We ENGAGE our guests through hot meals and spiritual teaching; we RELATE to our guests through classes and community service referrals, and we TRANSFORM our clients through a six month comprehensive transitional housing program.


    "The Harvest Center of Charlotte is a place of miracles. The only vision I had before was a life of alcoholism and poverty. My outlook on life was hopeless because I had destroyed most of my family relationships with my poor choices, but THC has become my physical and spiritual family. Now that I understand how God has been working in my life, I have been able to restore my broken family relationships, which is proof that miracles can happen."

    -Phil, Transformation Program Participant


    "The Harvest Center of Charlotte is all about loving thy neighbor and helping to provide hope to those whom have lost it. From First John, 3:17: "But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?"

    - Phil, Transformation Program Participant


    "I grew up going to church, but I did not know God. I wanted to, but didn't know how. After 25 years in a bad marriage in which both of us were searching for everything that didn't fulfill, I left everything on a journey to find what I was looking for. Abandoned and alone in Charlotte, I found The Harvest Center of Charlotte and that is where I found God. And it's in the people who work here, I now have hope to reconnect with my children and move them here with me. The Harvest Center of Charlotte is about reconnecting to your source."

    - Vince, Transformation Program Participant


    "I have found my purpose at The Harvest Center of Charlotte and have been enabled to fulfill my passion in life, a career in ministry. Being on the staff at THC gives me the chance to meet people where they are and assist them with getting where they need to go. I feel like I am fulfilling my assignment from God as we not only provide physical food but also nurture and feed people spiritually, emotionally, and economically. As I am helping to transform the lives of those we serve, I am being transformed as well!"

    -Brandi Meekins, Core Services Director


    "When you drive through the streets of Charlotte, you see the homeless standing on the corners. They all have looks of hopefulness on their faces . . . many holding signs asking for help. When they come to the Harvest Center of Charlotte we offer them help. We give them a hot meal, a place to come in where it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter . . . but we offer them more, much more. At the Harvest Center of Charlotte, we offer hope. We open the Word of God, and they hear about Jesus. It is in Him that we all find our hope. I have been at the Harvest Center of Charlotte for 15 years, and I can say that I have seen lives changed because of that HOPE."

    -Marcy Gregg, Volunteer


    "From the moment I connected with The Harvest Center of Charlotte, like others, I was hooked. It's hard to explain until you experience it first hand. The geniune desire of our transformation participants to make life changes, to the dedication of our staff and volunteers, to the powerful collection of knowledge from our Board of Advisors and Board of Directors. It's amazing to see how God uses everyone's talents to join forces to create a better community and we are constantly reminded of Matthew 19:26 "But Jesus looked at at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
