Changed Lives Christian Center - Birmingham, AL


Changed Lives Christian Center (CLCC) is a Christ-centered ministry, managed by and in partnership with the Foundry, that offers transitional housing for men who are on their way to recover from homelessness, whether from the economic recession or other personal issues such as substance abuse and/or mental illness. CLCC aims to do more than manage the homeless by feeding and sheltering them overnight or for a short time. The mission of Changed Lives is to take individuals who are presently homeless and weave them back into the fabric of productive society. The center currently houses 56 men for 6 - 24 months, providing a mailing address, getting Social Security cards and/or drivers licenses if needed, offering medical and dental care, teaching life skills, providing wrap around recovery services, and helping them find jobs. Residents have savings accounts, learn personal financial management and pay monthly rent to live at CLCC.

Changed Lives Christian Center is an outgrowth of THE NEST, a ministry that has been working with homeless people living on the streets and under the interstates since 1997. Changed Lives Christian Center has been endorsed by the City of Birmingham, Operation New Birmingham and numerous community and neighborhood associations. CLCC plays an important role in meeting the goals of Birmingham’s 10-year Plan to Prevent and End Chronic Homelessness. Those involved with this ministry anticipate a significant positive impact in decreasing chronic homelessness in Birmingham.
