The AmeriCorps Partnership to End Homelessness, a program of The Servant Center, is an energetic, dedicated group of  diverse individuals interested in ending homelessness and hunger in Guilford County.

Our 20+ members are from different backgrounds, are different ages, and come with different strengths but have one shared goal — to   restore hope and make a positive difference in the lives of our community!

Participants of the Partnership to End Homelessness, called Members, are engaged in a variety of services in Greensboro. Members can be found in our of our 7 sites: The Servant Center, the Interactive Resource Center, Step Up Greensboro, FaithAction International House, Greensboro Urban Ministry, Center for New North Carolinians, and YWCA. Members are engaged in roles that focus on providing housing, employment assistance, and emergency groceries (among other services) to Greensboro’s homeless and at-risk community.

Along with serving clients at their sites, members participate in and plan monthly community service projects to benefit the Greensboro community. We annually participate in the Triad Veterans Stand Down, Greensboro Urban Ministry’s CROP Hunger Walk, a Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway with the food pantry at One Step Further, and our community’s Homeless Persons Day of Remembrance Walk. Members will also participate in ongoing personal development training on topics such as Homelessness Issues, Race Relations, and Mental Health Issues.
