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.

'A Continent on Display' Opens in Rowe Galleries

The Department of Art and Art History and Rowe Arts Galleries are hosting "A Continent on Display: Selections from the Collection of Michael Gallis," an exhibit that features 10 masks representing nine cultural groups from various regions in Africa.

Gallis provided UNC Charlotte art history major Susan Fredson-Cole access to his private collection. The exhibition will run through Thursday, May 7.

According to Fredson-Cole, the exhibition masks were carefully chosen for their aesthetic quality. They possess a certain personality reflective in their distinct facial characteristics, all-waiting for their stories to be told.
