Mission Statement

Our Mission, as disciples of Jesus Christ, is to serve the people of Cabarrus County by providing resources to meet the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of the homeless and disadvantaged and to collaborate with community constituents to develop and implement practical solutions that address the root causes of homelessness.

Description

Opportunity House is a day shelter that was started in 2007 by Dan Talbert. Mr. Talbert was determined to create an organization that would serve the community by meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of individuals experiencing homelessness, addiction, and recently released from incarceration. Opportunity House provides access to life's essential needs for people experiencing these hardships.

Opportunity House provides two chef prepared meals (breakfast & lunch) daily, access to toiletries and hot showers for guests in need, access to free laundry units for washing and drying clothing, and access to healthcare & community resources to help with finding homes, jobs, and needed support and assistance with overcoming addiction. There is also a clothing closet onsite which provides seasonal clothing and shoes for guests in need.

Opportunity House also houses an organization called Narrow Gate which was developed after witnessing house guests and volunteers share in fellowship together. Narrow Gate provides a meal (chef prepared), vibrant music, and a message to all participants on Thursday nights in Concord and Kannapolis, NC. It is open to the public and is place where all can come and share in worship together.
