July 7, 2009 Southport, North Carolina (NC) - A dozen United Methodist Women from Camp United Methodist Church in Shallotte recently toured Providence Home in Southport. Since November 1997 this unique ministry has been providing, at no cost to their families, short-term and safe shelter to Brunswick County youth ages 10-17 who, due to an emergency, high-risk or crisis situation, cannot remain with their families. The goal of Providence Home is to offer youth and their families an opportunity to work on the problems that led to the youth being placed out of the home. Shown with UMW members at far left is Warren Morley, executive director of the shelter. The UMW presented a cash gift, and learned that the home may also be supported by donations to/purchases from its Sheltered Treasures Thrift Shops in Sunset Beach, Calabash and Southport. To make your own cash donation send a tax-deductible check to Providence Home, P.O. Box 11042, Southport, N.C. 28461.

Part of the United Methodist Church General Board of Global Ministries, United Methodist Women is an organization of approximately one million members whose purpose is to foster spiritual growth, develop leaders and advocate for justice. Members raise nearly $25 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world. The Women's Division is the national policy-making body of this group.
