Moore Place is a 120-unit permanent supportive housing apartment complex.
In early 2012, CSS Homeless Services partnered with Moore Place to provide wraparound services to (at that time) 85 chronically homeless adults. Owned and operated by Urban Ministry Center, Moore Place is the first permanent supportive housing residential complex in Charlotte based on the “Housing First” philosophy. A team of Mecklenburg County Community Support Services employees, made up of licensed mental health clinicians and a clinical supervisor, collaborate with Urban Ministry Center staff. They provide supportive services, ensure individuals’ successful adjustment to permanent supportive housing, and help individuals regain lives of wellness and stability.
The medically fragile population of chronically homeless individuals receive a full range of holistic services, from assisting disabled clients to clean their apartments, to diagnosing a mental health disorder and providing the interventions for treatment.
As part of the Housing First Charlotte-Mecklenburg initiative, Urban Ministry Center plans to add 150 new units of permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless adults to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area in 2017 and into 2018.
