Partnership To End Homelessness
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! Members are able to serve in a variety of ways in various nonprofits in Guilford and Forsyth Counties.
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.
