Mecklenburg’s nonprofits and faith community help fill gaps for poor

For years, Mecklenburg County’s nonprofits and faith community have filled some of the gaps for the poor left empty by government programs. They feed, clothe and help with rent and utility bills. They offer English classes for the newly arrived in hopes it will help them land a job. Some churches adopt schools in their area where there is a high concentration of students who receive free or reduced lunches.
