Supportive Housing Communities

Charlotte Observer honors SHC Executive Director Pamela Jefsen as a hero among us…

Per the Charlotte Observer, Pam Jefsen spent a busy 2016 grappling with one of Charlotte’s thorniest problems: housing the chronically homeless. As the leader of SHC, she led a new push to use scattered-site apartments as a form of rapid re-housing for those most desperately in need of shelter. It wasn’t permanent housing, she said, but it got needy people off the street more quickly. Leaders in Charlotte pledged in 2015 to end chronic homelessness here by the end of 2016, but the struggle continues. Jefsen says the numbers on Charlotte’s homelessness problem aren’t decreasing as much as she’d like, “but the infrastructure and the possibilities are looking good because of the work we’re doing as a community.”
