Charlotte Family Housing is a shelter-to-housing program for homeless families. But who we are isn’t simply defined by what we do, but rather, how we do it.
We hold a deep belief in the strength and the capability of our families. We build upon our families’ strengths to help them forge a path back to self-sufficiency. Our model is designed to produce healthy, deep, measurable and lasting change.
Since 7/1/11 when three agencies merged to form Charlotte Family Housing, we have focused on three crucial areas:
- Creating an innovative and effective model which provides a customized path leading each of our homeless families to self-sufficiency
- Focusing on empowerment: we will not do anything for a family that they can do for themselves
- Establishing a framework so we can serve more families through shorter shelter stays and ensuring each family does not become homeless again
Our families and our supporters partner with us in producing healthy, deep, measurable and lasting change. Our overall goal is not to help a family for a little while, but to actually change the lives of every family we serve.
