AFFORDABLE HOUSING CRISIS IN CHARLOTTE
Over 30,000 adults in Charlotte are unable to find affordable housing. Many of these individuals are skilled professionals such as teachers, firemen, police and retail workers. For veterans, many of whom are physically or mentally disabled finding an affordable home with access to necessary services such as health care and healthy foods can be challenging. Young adults such as children aging out of foster care do not have the necessary skills or financial background to secure a home in the tight housing market.
The Need for Affordable Homes in Charlotte
In Charlotte homeless individuals live in deplorable conditions such as bus stations, outside of houses of worship and businesses. During the COVID epidemic in 2020, homeless individuals in Charlotte lived in tent cities infested with insects and rodents until they were rescued and placed in vacant motel rooms temporarily. Now that the COVID is abating many of these residents are now being forced back into the streets. We believe a safe place to live should be a human right.
