Event description

Description

If you’ve ever taken notice of someone who is homeless, you’ve probably wondered a few things – how did they become homeless? What should I say or do to help them? What needs to change? Join the Urbanites on Thursday, February 21st for a lunchtime conversation about housing and homelessness in our city.

We’ll explore:

  • The scope and causes of homelessness in Charlotte

  • Homeless services provided by Urban Ministry Center

  • The Housing First model

  • Charlotte’s affordable housing crisis and its impact on those who are most vulnerable

  • Opportunities to plug in at UMC

Most importantly, we want to hear YOUR questions. Bring your lunch and your curiosity! We will be in the Sklut Classroom at the Foundation for the Carolinas and will begin promptly at 12. Be sure to arrive early to secure your spot!

Contact Katie Church (kchurch@urbanministrycenter.org) or Elizabeth Cooper (Elizabeth.Cooper@dhg.com) with any questions! We look forward to seeing you there!
