How long have you lived in Birmingham? Since 1958
You’ve been a Birmingham resident for a long time and seen the landscape of downtown change over the years. How do you feel like Urban Purpose can help make a difference in our city? Urban purpose is providing food and clothing to the cities homeless, building relationships with these people, and witnessing to them. Our ministry brings hope to people going through hard times.
