Last night, Charlotte City Council approved $2 million for Charlotte Rescue Mission. The funds come from the Coronavirus State and Local Recovery Fund and are part of the city’s overall $4 million investment in Charlotte Rescue Mission.
The funds will support construction of a new building to help men experiencing homelessness and addiction.
Last spring, Charlotte Rescue Mission broke ground on Miracle at Cedar Street, a new men’s shelter. The building, funded partly by a $500,000 donation from the Lowe’s Foundation, will be ADA-compliant and include an elevator.
It will replace the organization’s 100-year-old building on 907 W. 1st Street.
Stay informed with news and events that impact Charlotte’s Black communities.
The $2 million will replace a previous donation from the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME-ARP).
