Mission and Work

Mission

The mission of Charlotte Family Housing is to empower homeless families to achieve long-term self-sufficiency through shelter, housing, support services and advocacy.

Description

Charlotte Family Housing, . And its wholly-owned subsidiary, jumpstart Charlotte, (together, the organization") are private not-for-profit enterprises which work to solve family homelessness by doing three things: 1. Housing families: we address the immediate need of homelessness by sheltering homeless families and help them forge a path back to housing, along with providing short-term rental assistance in apartments all around the community. Building partnerships: we partner with families in the areas of financial self-reliance, careers, education, support networks, and health and wellness, and volunteers form intentional relationships of encouragement and support. 3. Empowering change: we offer matched savings accounts, financial assistance for qualified emergencies, and a holiday store where families budget for and purchase gifts for a portion of the price, in order to preserve dignity and self-esteem, increase personal accountability, and decrease dependency. Cfh shelter phase: the organization offers three shelter sites: plaza place, Hawthorne place, and Elizabeth house. In the shelter phase, a social worker and housing resource coordinator work closely with families over a period of 90 days to remove barriers to obtaining housing. 1. Plaza place is a fifteen-bedroom facility located on the plaza and provides short-term transitional shelter for homeless families while providing comprehensive support. Families have their own bedroom and most have their own bathroom (smaller families may share a bathroom). A large living room is shared for group meetings and for family time in the evenings. Each family has access to a small refrigerator and cabinets to store their own food and is responsible for cooking their own meals. 2. Hawthorne place is a six-bedroom facility located inside st. john's baptist church and provides a short-term transitional shelter for homeless families while providing comprehensive support. All families have their own bedroom and may share a bathroom with another family "jack and jill" style. Meals are shared "family style" two nights a week and for sunday lunch. Families have access to their own refrigerator/cabinets to prepare their own meals the other nights of the week. Staffing is provided by a combination of paid employees and volunteers. During the day, families can go to a daycenter at plaza place where children are picked up and dropped off for school. Daycenter amenities include showers, laundry facilities, lockers, computers, telephone, cable, and an address for mail purposes. 3. Elizabeth house is a four-bedroom facility located on Hawthorne lane and provides short-term transitional shelter for homeless families while providing comprehensive support. All families have their own bedroom and may share a bathroom with another family. Meals are shared "family style" two nights a week and for sunday lunch. Families have access to their own refrigerator/cabinets to prepare their own meals the other nights of the week. Staffing is provided by a combination of paid employees and volunteers. During the day, families can go to a daycenter at plaza place where children are picked up and dropped off for school. Daycenter amenities include showers, laundry facilities, lockers, computers, telephone, cable, and an address for mail purposes. Cfh housing phase: the organization offers subsidized housing to approximately 204 homeless families living at the three organization shelters or others in the community. Housing is provided via vacant apartments all around the community. The size of the apartment and the rent range are determined by organization staff, while the participant has input into the location of the apartment (as availability allows). These factors are dependent on family size and the amount of income of each participant. Each client's portion of the rent is calculated using a consistent formula, with the organization subsidizing the remaining balance. One year of social work services is provided to each family with the potential for renewal if the family continues to meet eligibility requirements. All families in the cfh housing phase receive the support of a clinical family social worker to help eliminate their barriers to maintaining housing, especially relating to areas of financial knowledge, children's education, and health and wellness (including mental health and addiction support). Families will also be offered a hope team, a group of 4-6 volunteers that provides support and encouragement.
