Yesterday, June 5, the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte and Crisis Assistance Ministry announced a deepening of our already strong partnership. MSC is enlisting CAM’s help in managing our clothing donations used for the men we serve. By doing so, both agencies do what we do best. The men we still have their basic needs, maybe even better than before. May seem like a small thing, but allowing our agencies to play to our strengths allows us all to better care for vulnerable citizens in our community. Isn’t that the epitome of partnership regardless of the scope or scale? Thanks CAM for helping MSC be a better community provider!

In September 2008 I became the Executive Director of the Men's Shelter of Charlotte. I've spent almost 15 years working to end homelessness in North Carolina. After working with homeless and runaway youth in Raleigh, I served as the Director of the South Wilmington Street Center (men's shelter) in Wake County and then worked on Orange County's 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness. I am a former board chair for the North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness and former chair of the Homeless Services Network in Charlotte. In 2014 I served as the partner agency representative on the United Way Central Carolinas board of directors.
