Charlotte Family Housing

I Want to Help

It takes a caring community to help our families as they move from crisis to shelter to housing. Making a gift to Charlotte Family Housing means making an investment in our community. You will be helping mothers, fathers and children who are partnering with us to ensure a brighter tomorrow.

Gifts can be mailed to Charlotte Family Housing, 300 Hawthorne Lane, Charlotte, NC 28204.

Welcome Buckets are received by families after they move into housing. They include the following:
• Mop, broom and dust pan, kitchen garbage bags, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, dishwashing detergent and cloths, cleaning products (Windex, Scrubbing Bubbles, etc.), and a bucket.

We accept individual items and complete welcome baskets or buckets.  As our families are making a fresh start, we ask that all donated items are new.

In-kind donations can be dropped off at our Plaza Place shelter at 2410 The Plaza, Charlotte, NC 28205.

Questions about what we can take? Please call the Development Office at 704-996-5119.

Other In-Kind Items

We collaborate with many agencies in the community to empower the families we serve with the other items they need. Please see the following list for suggestions on where to take specific in-kind items in the future, knowing that our families will still be able to access these donations, or in some cases, the items are more appropriate for these agencies.

Please note: Starting in 2013, we no longer accept donations of in-kind clothing. We suggest taking clothing donations to Crisis Assistance Ministry (address and phone below).
