Mt. Zion Methodist, UMAR dedicate Disciple Home
by Staff Writer
Disciple Home is the Huntersville-based nonprofit’s first independent living residence for adults, and the celebration takes place from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the home, which is located near the church.
The three residents will receive support from UMAR staff as they learn how to live independently while developing life skills such as managing a home budget, buying groceries and dividing up household chores. Construction of the Disciple Home began last fall. Volunteers from the Lake Norman District of the United Methodist Church and UMAR staff collaborated with Wesley Community Development Corp. to build the house. Mt. Zion United Methodist Church donated the land for the project.
