Over the years, Diakonos has evolved to meet the dynamic and ever-evolving needs of the community we serve. We took over “The Soup Kitchen” in 1992 and today, our Community Kitchen (renamed to reflect its outreach) serves three meals every day of the year.
In 2016, our Veterans Transitional Housing Program opened in partnership with the Iredell-Statesville Community Enrichment Corporation the Piedmont Veterans Assistance Council.
The needs of the people we serve are great and there are never easy answers or solutions. Through it all, we work hard to help them build more stable, productive lives.
