Homelessness: A Panel Discussion

A lack of affordable housing continues to squeeze Charlotte’s most vulnerable homeless citizens. According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Point-in-Time Count, there are 11,448 homeless people in North Carolina, which includes 1,303 unsheltered families.  In Charlotte, 1.37 out of 1,000 people are without shelter. Ten percent of them are chronically homeless and 68 percent of them have been in the city for more than 2 years and still haven’t found permanent housing. Also – in some part due to stagnant wages – 7 out of 10 of homeless individuals report having some source of income but not enough to afford a place to live.

Join us (Nov. 16, 2017) for a panel discussion on this nagging problem as we explore the issues as well as possible solutions. Our guests will be Joel Segal, Justin Markel, and Mary Renee Bell all of whom have been impacted by homelessness at some point in their lives.
