North Carolina transitional housing programs.

Short term housing assistance in North Carolina includes resources such as homeless shelters and more mid term transitional housing. The resources listed below are offered for families, veterans, single parents, seniors, and the formerly disabled. Participants can receive assistance with meeting their housing needs and also help for regaining self-sufficiency.

Transitional housing really involves providing people a place to stay. However, the most important components really involved helping families in North Carolina regain stability and to also find a more permanent, affordable apartment or home to live in. The non-profits and their case managers offer employment assistance, job training, meals, case management, and more for individuals who use the services.
