Who We Are
We are a helping hand during the storms of life. Founded in 1969, the Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that assists Catawba County’s unemployed, underemployed and indigent residents by providing crisis relief, support, and education, as well as health care and food. Assisted by community churches, GHCCM also receives valuable funding from foundations, local businesses, individuals, grants, civic organizations, and fundraising. GHCCM is recognized regionally and nationally for its work and is noted by many business and political leaders as a model of efficiency and organization.
