Two Cabarrus service agencies receive federal grants

KANNAPOLIS — Two local organizations, Cabarrus Cooperative Christian Ministry and Midway’s Opportunity House, have received a federal grant through the city of Kannapolis to help deliver services to people in need.
Cabarrus Cooperative Christian Ministry received $24,000. They will use the funds to help individuals and families who are either homeless, on the verge of eviction from their homes or who are in the process of losing utilities. The funds will also be used to help residents of the city who need job training, access to nutritional food, counseling and additional services to aid them in establishing and keeping a home. The ministry expects to serve 1,375 families this year.
Midway’s Opportunity House also received $24,000 to continue their “Lawn and Landscape Company.” This program helps the homeless by providing them with a job, and experience in operating a small business. The organization also provides a food ministry on weekdays (breakfast and lunch) and Thursday nights. They expect to help 220 residents of the city this year.
The funds come from the federal Community Development Building Grant Program. Each year Kannapolis receives funds that can be awarded to non-profit organizations who deliver pertinent services to residents who are in need. This year the city focused on distributing the funds to organizations with a mission in aiding the homeless and job creation.
