In-Kind Gift

We have a running in-kind wish list. You can download a recently updated Word document version, here. We also maintain an Amazon Wish List where you can purchase items and send them directly to us. Any gifts on this list would be much appreciated by SHC clients who are either currently homeless (and being served by our street outreach team) or formerly homeless (and in one of our supportive housing programs). If you would like to drop off a donation, we would be very grateful, but will need to carefully coordinate to maintain social distancing guidelines for our residents. To coordinate, please send an email copying Executive Assistant Diane Beecham at and Development Coordinator Robin Hancock at Thank you for your support!

Luncheon 2019

Sponsor the Luncheon

SHC’s flagship fundraising event is our annual luncheon, which will be held this year on March 17, 2021, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. We have reserved the Charlotte Convention Center again but may end up transitioned to a virtual fundraising luncheon–stay tuned for more information. Whether we gather together in person or remotely, you can help make the luncheon a success by finding sponsorships or by serving as a (virtual?) table captain. Sponsorship levels and benefits are listed here. Table captains commit to filling up a table of eight (you and seven of your friends, coworkers, etc.). If you have a lead for a sponsorship or want to sign up as a table captain, please contact Development Coordinator Robin Hancock at or 704-248-3772.

Public Speaker

Schedule a Tour or Speaker

If you want to know more about what we do, the first step is to schedule a tour at McCreesh Place (i.e., our Permanent Supportive Housing Complex on North Davidson Street).  Or, if you’d rather we come to you, we would be happy to make a presentation to your faith community or work group.  Because of COVID-19, McCreesh Place is currently closed for tours but we are still able to make speaking engagements virtually. To schedule a speaking engagement, please contact Sherrill Hampton at
