First founded in 1984, United Methodist Urban Ministries stepped forward to foster hope to underserved and vulnerable populations by sharing vital information and referrals needed to meet basic needs. Not long after, it became clear that we needed to partner with our community in order to encourage and support our clients directly, offering emergency food, shelter, prescription, and utilities assistance. In 1991, our vision expanded with the establishment of the SafeHouse Domestic Violence Shelter, a sanctuary dedicated to protect individuals suffering from physical or emotional abuse. Now registered as an independent 501(c)3 organization, Clarksville Area Urban Ministries continues to thrive, serving the community by fostering relationships while delivering hope and promoting dignity to all who enter.More About Us
“Grace Assistance helped me when I was at my lowest & continues to bless me whenever I need it.”
I have been a client of Grace Assistance since 2016 when I first became homeless. They have provided me with food, clothing and other items to help me survive on the streets in Clarksville. I have been lucky enough to get employment recently which helped with housing. One of the biggest challenges I have faced was getting to and from work when there are no busses available on Sunday. Shortly after I told Mrs. Debbie that I was going to lose my job due to transportation, she found a bicycle for me. Grace Assistance has been huge part of my life and will continue to be as I gain more and more independence.
