MSC in the National Spotlight
This week the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte was highlighted on SAMSHA’s Homelessness Resource Center website (SAMSHA is the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). The article, Light The Dark, focuses on MSC’s diversion launch. Modeled on best practices around the country, MSC’s approach is unique in that the service is located in our shelter but designed to avoid having eligible participants ever actually sleep in our shelter. Please take a moment to read the piece. We’re proud that our diversion efforts have been noticed and our diversion specialists are working hard to ensure our approach helps as many men as possible end their homeless experience quickly and permanently.
