In order to reduce the potential spread of the Covid-19 virus, Metropolitan Ministries (MetMin) will continue assisting those in need with utility bills and food vouchers to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank by phone only. All person-to-person contact is curtailed until further notice.
“MetMin stands ready to continue at its regular client service load of 35 households a day, Monday through Wednesday,” says Executive Director Rebecca Whelchel. “If we are awarded additional funds to respond to this community- and nation-wide crisis, we have the capacity and processes in place to scale up our response.
All we need is the funding to do so and to more extensively support the most vulnerable members of our community.”
Those in need of assistance may contact the MetMin office at 423-624-9650 or 423-624-9654. To make a donation or to learn more about Metropolitan Ministries’ impact to the community, visit www.met-min.org
