ABCCM was formed by churches in the Asheville – Buncombe area to respond to emergency assistance needs in the community. ABCCM seeks to create opportunities for its supporting churches to serve together in a cooperative and collaborative manner which extends the mission outreach of each church to reach out and serve others in the name of Christ.

ABCCM’s administrators, program directors and other staff work closely with our Board of Directors and advisory committees to ensure that our staff and facilities are an extension of the ownership and outreach of each congregation. We look to volunteers from our churches and are able utilize our common resources and experiences in meeting the critical needs of the under-served thereby providing the framework for ongoing ministry in the name of Christ to our community.
