The mission of Crisis Control Ministry is to assist people in crisis to meet essential life needs and to become self-sufficient.
We believe that food, shelter, and medicine are basic human needs and that we strive to meet the needs of people in Forsyth and Stokes Counties who are in crisis and dealing with unfortunate circumstances. We strive to give help for today and hope for tomorrow by providing our neighbors with support, advocacy, understanding, and information.
