Building Brighter Futures at Men’s Shelter of Charlotte (Now Roof Above)


United Way of Central Carolinas is committed to helping people in need get back on their feet and build a brighter future. When you give to United Way, you invest in nonprofits like Men’s Shelter of Charlotte and make a real difference in the lives of people living right here.


Men’s Shelter of Charlotte provides emergency shelter and basic needs through its two shelters. Its income/employment + housing services model focuses on increasing people’s income and helping them obtain housing.


In 2020, Men’s Shelter of Charlotte and Urban Ministry Center officially merged to form a single organization called Roof Above, in order to have a greater impact to end homelessness.
