What we aim to solve

For over 40 years the mission of Fayetteville Urban Ministry, Inc. has been "to show God's compassion for our neighbors in need, and thus build our community together." We pursue this mission by way of our 4 programs that exist to address and mitigate: clothing & food insecurity (Emergency Assistance Program), illiteracy & adult education (Adult Literacy & Education Center), at-risk & court involved youth (Find-A-Friend), and elderly & low-income home-ownership (Nehemiah Project). Collectively, these 4 programs will provide faith, hope, love, and security to over 10,000 Cumberland County residents every year, 100% free of charge. For every dollar we receive, 91 cents invested directly into our programs.

Fayetteville Urban Ministry's vision is to continuously brand our name, works and mission throughout each community and neighborhood in Cumberland County through services, assistance, partnerships and donor support. We wish to further the ideal of a community of compassion committed to the well being of our neighbors in need.

Additionally, our dream to build Fayetteville's first-ever Youth Enrichment Center to house our growing Find-A-Friend Youth Mentoring Program. Our Build the Dream Campaign is well underway with construction actively taking place and 86% of our $600,000 fundraising having been met.

By building on existing programs and bolstering proven methodologies we believe that we can improve our ability to serve our community, year after year, no matter what comes our way. We seek out new grants to address issues both new and old, such as bullying in the "Spy Kids" facet of our Find-A-Friend Program. We use newly acquired and donated technologies, such as Smart TVs, to host tax training and assistance classes for the elderly. We are constantly seeking to improve our ability to provide the aid and services most needed by those less fortunate.

Like many other non-profits, grants, endowments, and donations of many kinds are what allow us to do what we do. Our rate of investment into our programs, 91% of every dollar we receive, clearly shows that we know how to make best use of the support we're given. It also evidence of a staff whose motivations stem from a paradigm of altruism and a sincere desire to give back. With this in tow, our organization is capable of achieving any goal we put forward and overcome any obstacle placed in front of us. Our staff is constantly receiving new training and implementing new strategies while honing proven ones in an effort to provide the kind of service and results one might expect from a large, national organization.

As a fairly small non-profit, the evidence of our successes, or failures, is most often falls right before our eyes. However, we also submit quarterly reports to the United Way of Cumberland County as an audit of our programs and expenditures. From this data, we can clearly see where we need improve and can infer what steps need to be taken to do so.

The labor and love of over 40 years of community involvement has produced a tried and true local non-profit organization that has been recognized on a State level worth and trustworthy cause. Our main goal for the last year has been the Build the Dream Campaign -a fundraising endeavor to fully fund and build Fayetteville's first-ever Youth Enrichment Center to house our growing Find-A-Friend Youth Mentoring Program. This building will be located directly across the street from our home office and will serve as a beacon for youth development and growth in our community. Our Build the Dream Campaign is well underway with construction actively taking place and 86% of our $600,000 fundraising having been met.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
