Helping Homeless to HousingHelping Homeless to Housing is an advocacy group made up of formerly and potentially homeless people helping to improve the lives of individuals experiencing and getting beyond homelessness. Our work includes advocating for more supportive housing, more employment opportunities for ex-offenders, outreach to people still in places unfit; voter registration and voting drives. We meet every Thursday afternoon from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Moore Place (2435 Lucena St., Charlotte, NC 28206). Our meetings are open to all. We'd love for you to join us.

Housing Instability and Homelessness Reports
The annual Housing Instability and Homelessness Report Series is designed to provide information, using local data and research, to help the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community make better decisions around homelessness and housing instability. The reports are intended for housing and homelessness service providers, funders, public officials and policy makers, the media, the general public and others who have an interest in this work.
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Urban Institute prepared the reports. The Housing Advisory Board of Charlotte-Mecklenburg initiated the reports, and Mecklenburg County Community Support Services provided funding for the reports.
