Description: Emergency Shelter, Permanent Supportive Housing.

Permanent Supportive Housing
Through our HousingWorks program,the Urban Ministry Center seeks to fulfill its mission of ending homelessness by giving the most vulnerable what they so desperately need: a home. HousingWorks has three pathways to housing for chronically homeless individuals: at Moore Place, an 85-unit apartment building that opened in February 2012; in Scattered Site apartments (45 units); and in MeckFUSE, a partnership with Mecklenburg County providing an additional 45 community-based apartments.
The HousingWorks approach is simple: give chronically homeless individuals what they need most – a safe, stable, affordable home – and then provide the wrap-around support to help them remain housed and regain lives of wellness and dignity. A team of social workers, therapists, a full-time nurse and a part-time psychiatrist provide supportive services to help each HousingWorks tenant manage the transition from long-term homelessness to housing, and to help individuals meet personal goals to ensure they never become homeless again.
HousingWorks specifically targets those individuals who have been homeless the longest, are the most vulnerable and are the most frequent users of emergency rooms, jails, shelters and other costly crisis services. Our experience demonstrates – and research shows – that supportive housing for this population saves lives and saves our community money.

Eligibility for HousingWorks:
All potential tenants must be unaccompanied (we regret we cannot house couples or families) and meet the federal definition of chronic homelessness, including documentation of a disabling condition. They must be a US resident, ages 18 or older. Income is not a requirement.
HousingWorks participates in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Coordinated Assessment System and all referrals for housing must come from one of the assessment sites. This is an assessment site. Hours: Mondays through Fridays 8:30am to 3:30pm.
