For Martin, having a steady career in a stable industry did not make him immune to lay-offs at a well-respected food service company in Charlotte.

Meet Jason and Hayley Yepko-monthly donors to the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte. MSC provided 206,273 nights of shelter in FY2011-12 which represents a 14% increase in men served during the same time period last year. Meeting our community’s need has come at a cost and we need the financial support of individuals, like Jason and Hayley, to continue our work to serve as the catalyst for systemic change to end homelessness in our community.
