Launch Upstream:

Homelessness Prevention in Charlotte-Mecklenburg

Released in October 2019, this report provides the community with a comprehensive look at the overall prevention assistance system. Despite an influx of new funding, and the recognized potential for broad community impacts, prevention remains underutilized as a system tool. Charlotte-Mecklenburg can use this report to look at prevention assistance with a new lens, aligning existing resources and efforts to optimize the housing and homelessness system by targeting resources upstream, where they can be more effectively and efficiently used.

The assessment was completed by Mecklenburg County Community Support Services.
