If You Need Help

If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness, your first step is calling 2-1-1!  

Available 24/7/365 and fluent in multiple languages, NC 2-1-1’s trained call specialists will facilitate a telephone assessment then direct you to an available homeless shelter, housing assistance or other community resources. 


You First Need A Coordinated Entry Assessment

Before being admitted for a shelter bed, one will need to complete a Coordinated Entry Assessment. Coordinated Entry is a process that aims to connect individuals and families who are homeless, or those at imminent risk of homelessness, to an existing available shelter/housing resource in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community. If you call 2-1-1 (or 888-892-1162), a representative can share more on this process.

Coordinated Entry occurs at the following locations/times:

  • Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, 1210 N. Tryon Street, 8am-4pm, M-F.
  • Urban Ministry Center, 945 N. College Street, 830am-430pm, M-F.  Note: Check-in times for all services at Urban Ministry Center are at 8:30am and 1:30pm. 
  • Salvation Army Center of Hope, 500 Spratt Street, 7am-5pm, M-F. 

Remember though, for inquiries related to housing and/or homeless resources/shelter, the first step is to call 2-1-1 (or 888-892-1162).
