is a NC chartered and IRS approved 501c(3) non-profit Public Charity organization dedicated to providing sustainable, affordable housing with supportive services for the homeless and those who are at risk of becoming homeless.
As of January 2019, there were
2106 homeless people in Mecklenburg County.
Currently, there are over 20,000 families priced out of affordable housing. This includes police officers, teachers, and other first responders.
In Mecklenburg County, over 10% of the homeless are veterans.
There are more than 4,000 children who are homeless in Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools.
In Charlotte, the average cost to provide support for a homeless person is $40,000. This drops significantly to approximately $14,000 once in supportive housing.
Good community housing programs have over a 97% housing stability rate. Individuals who have been chronically homeless, but can get in, can sustain that housing.
We would like to send a huge heartfelt thank you for believing in this dream. It has become a reality and we have officially cut the ribbon on our Small Beginnings Community. Residents will be moving within the next week!
