Caterpillar Ministries exists to change the lives of children and their families in impoverished areas of Lake Norman. Combating the consequences of extreme poverty, frightening dropout rates and escalating addiction, volunteers provide children with alternative educational, spiritual and mentoring options. Caterpillar has grown from a lunch program for five children to a ministry that helps over 200 children weekly.

Our Charities 

ANSWER Scholarship helps send moms to college to earn degrees.  We find this organization exceptional, because its holistic approach amplifies the potential for success for everyone. Not only does ANSWER fund and bestow much needed scholarships, but its process has designed into it a self-renewing success booster, THE MENTORS FOR MOMS. Each scholarship recipient is assigned an ANSWER grad as a “big sister” to help through the challenges of raising a family, work and school.​

Hope House Foundation provides housing and support services for single women and mothers whose lives have been turned upside down when displaced from home due to job loss, illness, or a major life change. These women’s safety nets have broken and they need our community’s support to help them work toward self-sustaining goals.​
