Study Shows Impact of Homeless Housing Program

A nationally recognized program to house Charlotte’s chronically homeless continues to help people and save money as it enters its fourth year, according to a UNC Charlotte report.

The 85-unit apartment complex at Moore Place provides housing for individuals who have extensive histories of homelessness and at least one disabling condition.

The new study led by Lori Thomas, professor of social work in the College of Health and Human Services, found that Moore Place effectively ends homelessness for the vast majority of its tenants; 81 percent of those who participated in the study remained in permanent housing after two years. Tenants were homeless an average of seven years prior to finding housing at Moore Place. Click here for more information about the study.
