Faith Partners

Charlotte Family Housing has developed strong roots as a result of the investment and support of faith partners in our community. These partners have provided time, treasure, and property to help empower families on the path to self-sufficiency.

For more information on how your faith community can support Charlotte Family Housing, please contact our Development Team at:

Key efforts led by the faith community include:

Hope Teams

A Hope Team is a group of 3-6 volunteers who partner with a family to provide support and encouragement. Hope Teams build relationships with families under the guidance of our social workers and the Hope Team Manager. A Hope Team helps empower a family to reach their goals by offering friendship, providing a positive support network, and increasing opportunities to build social capital. Some of our Hope Teams have come from Christ Episcopal Church, Covenant Presbyterian Church, Forest Hill Church, Myers Park Presbyterian Church, Myers Park United Methodist Church, Sardis Presbyterian Church, St. John's Baptist Church, St. John's Episcopal Church, and Temple Beth El.

"I believe that walking beside, encouraging, and providing assistance from my areas of expertise to a family is a beautiful way to use the gifts I have been blessed with to serve our community."
- Forest Hill Church Hope Team member

Jubilee Christmas Store

The Jubilee Store offers Charlotte Family Housing program participants and graduates an empowering, hopeful, dignified way of purchasing holiday gifts for their families. The Jubilee Store is made possible by generous gift donations from our faith partners. Rather than simply receiving the gifts, our families are invited to come and shop for their families. This allows our families to actively engage in budgeting for, selecting, and purchasing gifts for their family members.

On average, nearly 100 Charlotte Family Housing families shop and purchase new, donated gifts at 30% of the retail price. More than 150 volunteers come together to make the Jubilee Store a success by leading toy and gift donation outreach efforts, hosting children's activities so that parents can shop, assisting shoppers, serving food, wrapping gifts, and managing the event space, from setting up and decorating before it opens to resetting it once it closes. We especially thank St. John's Baptist Church, Myers Park United Methodist Church, Myers Park Presbyterian Church, and Christ Episcopal Church.

"The Jubilee Store is a great opportunity for families to have a hand up, not a hand-out. Things at the store are not free, but discounted so that you get a bargain. I can spend my own money and get a good deal; it's not just handed to me. I don't want to feel like everything is free because of my situation. The store gives me pride and honor by giving me a chance to buy my own gifts. Everyone did a fantastic job with organizing the store. It was wonderful!"
