Crisis Assistance Ministry is a cooperative ministry of the greater Gastonia faith community. By providing direct emergency assistance through collaboration with other community resources, CAM assists those facing financial crisis or struggling with the burden of poverty.
Established in 1976, CAM provides emergency assistance with food, necessary utilities, and rent/mortgage to low-income households in the greater Gastonia community. CAM serves about one-half of Gaston County, including those residing inside Gastonia city limits and rural areas surrounding the city limits. At this time, CAM does not provide assistance to residents in other cities/towns in Gaston County.
