The holiday season can add emotional and financial stress for many families, and this year is no exception. As Charlotte's housing prices continue to increase, many individuals and families are in need of housing and financial assistance.

According to the North Carolina Housing Coalition, the number of people experiencing unsheltered homelessness from 2020 to 2022 in NC increased from 2,558 to 3,625. Additionally, in the past month, NC 211 services received roughly 15,000 service requests, and of those requests, 52.7% were housing and shelter-related.

In order to help those experiencing difficulties in our community, we have compiled a list of volunteer opportunities at various organizations in the area that provide resources such as language classes, legal services, rental, financial, housing, and clothing assistance.
