There are 6,600 families in the city and county that are 1 paycheck from homelessness because they pay more than half their income toward their housing.
Welcome to IMPACT Charlottesville!
IMPACT’s mission is to empower the faith community of greater Charlottesville to create significant social change through unified direct action.
We are 26 congregations in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, representing 15,000 from the greater Charlottesville area. Comprised of Roman Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, Unitarian Universalist, and Muslim traditions, IMPACT is spiritually, racially and economically diverse. Our work builds strong relationships across racial, ethnic, and socio-economic lines to significantly address local community problems at their source.
