About Us

HISTORY

Carolina Rebuilding Ministry (CRM) began in 2011 as Christians Reaching Out in Sacred Service (CROSS). Volunteers were organized by the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church and sent to Plymouth to help make repairs to homes damaged by Hurricane Irene. Reverend Jay Clark and other leaders of Plymouth United Methodist Church took note of the conditions in which so many lived throughout the community, and knew that the work of rebuilding to make an impact on poverty in this community had just begun. 

In 2017 The Duke Endowment invested grant dollars with CRM to expand our infrastructure beyond Washington County into areas of northeastern North Carolina that requested assistance.  CRM now also serves Chowan and Bertie Counties.
