What We Do
The mission of Charlotte Family Housing is to empower working families experiencing homelessness to achieve long-term self-sufficiency through shelter, housing, supportive services and advocacy. IMPACT of COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS: How We Are Impacted: At Charlotte Family Housing (CFH), the safety and well-being of our families and staff is our top priority. In light of the national emergency that is the COVID-19 pandemic, until further notice: 1. Only essential personnel and residents may enter our shelters and 2. Tours, workshops, and volunteer opportunities are suspended at all sites. How You Can Help - By Donating to our CFH COVID-19 Emergency Fund: *The families we serve are less likely to have paid sick leave, health insurance, and access to quality healthcare. As uncertainty increases, we remain committed to supporting our families and staff as we continue to pursue our mission. You can support us in this commitment by contributing to our CFH COVID-19 Emergency Fund. For more information, please visit our website at: To donate, please click DONATE NOW! from the Donate tab on our homepage. *We are always in need of several household items from our Give Shop Amazon Wish List. The link where you can help our families by shopping from home is right here on our SHARE Charlotte homepage. Thank you for thinking of CFH and the working families experiencing homelessness that we help empower to achieve life-long self-sufficiency.

  • We hold a deep belief in the strength and capability of our families and build upon those strengths.
