Short term transitional housing and homeless shelters in Mecklenburg County

People facing eviction or the currently homeless in the Charlotte North Carolina region have access to several housing programs. They range from shelters, short term transitional units, to help in finding a new, permanent home or apartment to live in. The programs and agencies operate across Mecklenburg County.

Many of the organizations will try to prevent homelessness to begin with, so they may have information on or referrals to emergency rental assistance and eviction prevention services. Social workers try to also ensure clients receive ongoing case management. They will also work with Mecklenburg County residents and help them find and pay for low income apartments or homes in the region. As a shelter or transitional housing program is not the long term solution.

So if you are on the verge of eviction and need information on regional rental assistance programs, or if you are currently homeless, the Charlotte North Carolina and Mecklenburg County agencies below may be able to offer help to qualified low income families.
