What We Do

Community Link's mission is to enable individuals and families to obtain and sustain safe, decent and affordable housing.

Astonishingly, 46 percent of our local workforce cannot afford safe and decent housing, defined as being forced to spend more than a third of their income on housing. And even successful renters earning “moderate incomes” find themselves challenged to buy a home given barriers to saving appropriately for a down payment. Helping to solve these problems is the driving force behind our Homeless to Housing and Asset Building programs, that include first-time homeownership and financial empowerment classes and counseling.

Interesting Info

2019 is our 90th year! We opened in 1929 as Travelers Aid at Charlotte's train station to help stranded people return to a safe home in another city.
One or more of our services can be found in 16 counties across North Carolina.
Charlotte is now the 21st most expensive rental market in the US! That makes it hard for low-income individuals and families to find and keep housing.
