Charlotte Rescue Mission Receives $75,000 from US Airways

US Airways has made a donation of $75,000 to the Charlotte Rescue Mission (CRM) to help women struggling with homelessness and chemical addiction. This gift will be used to expand the Dove’s Nest center for women struggling with homelessness and chemical addiction. Dove’s Nest provides food, shelter, clothing and professional counseling for women and their children.

“This generous gift from US Airways will change the lives of so many women and children in the coming year,” says E.J. Underwood, director of development at CRM.

“US Airways’ support of the Charlotte Rescue Mission is more than just a charitable donation; it is fulfilling a promise to our employees, our customers and our communities to invest in nonprofit organizations that care for the most vulnerable in the cities we serve,” said Kelly Balthazor, US Airways’ Director of Community Relations. “We are honored to begin a partnership with the Mission and help them to provide safe shelter and long-term recovery programs that will ultimately change their lives of their residents.”

Charlotte Rescue Mission provides a 100 to 120-day residential recovery program for men and women who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. Because all of CRM’s clients are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, services are provided at no cost. The life and job skills training clients receive at CRM helps them transition back into the community as contributing, successful members.
