Merry Christmas

Christmas is now upon us and I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!  I’m especially proud of the dedicated staff at the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte (MSC) who will be working hard around the clock on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. 

A couple of weeks ago a group of high school students at Lake Forest Church made a bunch of Christmas cards for the men at our shelter.  All of those cards resonated with me because of the love and compassion those young folks displayed.  Here’s just one of the messages of hope that was provided:

Merry Christmas! Enjoy this Christmas knowing you are surrounded by the Lord’s love.  You are not forgotten and I hope this Christmas brings you so much joy.  Love, your friend Alexandra.

Well said Alexandra, well said!

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.
