Birchcroft Apartments (3143 Central Ave. Charlotte, NC 28205) located on Central Ave. between Briarcreek Rd. and Eastcrest Rd. Birchcroft is a melting pot of refugees from many different nations such as Burma, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Nepal, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Congo, and Eritrea.
As you may may have guessed, international people LOVE soccer and if you want to get into a pretty competitive pick up game where the dirt is flying and trees and bushes may get in the way, then Birchcroft is right up your alley.
Soccer aside, the Urban Eagles is a ministry of love and compassion as we help to educate and meet the practical needs of food, clothing, furniture and transportation to the families of Birchcroft.
The majority of the children speak broken English (some being fluent) their reading, writing, and comprehension is far below their grade levels and many are simply illiterate. The children in this neighborhood go to Merry Oaks Elementary, Eastway Middle School or Garringer High School.
We have partnered with Renovatus Church to provide both community and resources to the Birchcroft neighborhood.
