Shelter Plus Care is a federally funded permanent supportive housing program that links housing with supportive services to move individuals, and adults with families, who are homeless, have a disability and a low-income, to permanent housing. Support for participants combines a rental assistance subsidy funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Continuum of Care Program, and supportive services administered and provided by Mecklenburg County Community Support Services and other community partners.
