Welcome Message

Faithful men with vision…. Rev. Bruce Green of Grace Episcopal Church spearheaded a group of faithful Carthage men with a vision and a commitment to help homeless people in the Carthage area. The effort moved forward and Rev. Green called for a commitment on their part to put together a nonprofit and a shelter for the homeless. Representatives from nine churches including Carl Bowers of Fairview Christian, Beryl Kingsbury of First United Methodist, and Herman Holz of First Church of the Nazarene responded. A nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation—Carthage Crisis Center, Inc. was put together in March 1996. A 2,200 square foot building was secured at the corner of 5th and Lyon St. in Carthage for $15,000.

A bunch of volunteers with various skills stepped up. The building was completely remodeled.
