homeless ministry

The Meeting Place Mission is a transitional housing program for homeless men in recovery from alcoholism or substance abuse.  The Meeting Place provides housing, meals, counseling, job placement, and referral to other services. The Meeting Place currently uses 3 locations to transition residents into permanent housing.

FACES, Families Adjusting Changing Evolving Safely, is a program of transition for families in Burke County. There are currently two homes to provide short term transition for families experiencing homelessness.  Since opening in early 2011, they have helped more than a half dozen families into permanent housing.


Several members of Oak Hill United Methodist serve on the Board of Directors for "The Meeting Place".   Men who live at the shelter attend our Wednesday Evening Fellowship meals and volunteer to cook three times during the year. There are lots of ways to volunteer for the Meeting Place.  Click HERE to go to their website or contact Suzy Fitzgerald or Ken Clark to find ways to get involved.
