For Cedric, experiencing homelessness was a way of life. Twenty plus years of life, in fact. In and out of Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, our team patiently worked to cultivate and grow a trusted relationship with Cedric.
Struggling with severe mental illness, Cedric needed significant support. That support started with us and ultimately found him a home with Moore Place, permanent supportive housing created by Urban Ministry Center.

In consideration of the winter storm, there are several options available for people seeking shelter in Charlotte.
Men’s Shelter of Charlotte is now operating in “extreme overflow,” meaning that we can accommodate 100 additional spaces for men seeking shelter.
Room In The Inn is available for single men, single women, and women or men with children. Simply call or text “beds” to 704-312-7632 for daily bed availability, check-in, and overflow information.
The Grady Cole Center, located at 310 North Kings Drive in Charlotte, will open an overflow shelter on Saturday, December 8th at 3:00 p.m.
For people using the CAT bus to arrive at Men’s Shelter of Charlotte or the Grady Cole Center, simply tell the bus driver your destination and you should be able to ride for free.
Wondering How You Can Help?
During this time of increased capacity and emergency overflow, we greatly appreciate a financial gift.
Our most needed in-kind donations are new blankets, new boxers/boxer briefs (sizes Medium-2XL), and new towels. You can drop these items off at 1210 North Tryon Street in Charlotte. We are unable to accept used or gently used items.
Thank you to our donors, volunteers, and partners who believed in our mission, and most importantly, in our guests. We concluded our Fiscal Year 2018 on June 30, 2018 with much to celebrate! We share a few of our key success measures.
