Moore Place

A walkthrough of Moore Place, Charlotte's first real solution to homelessness.

Moore Place

Opened on January 29, 2012, Moore Place was the first permanent supportive housing solution in Charlotte to house chronically homeless men and women directly from street to home using the Housing First philosophy. It was a four-year community effort to build and is named in honor of Denver Moore (Same Kind of Different as Me) and John and Pat Moore, community philanthropists who provided the first funding for the pilot program Homeless to Homes started by the Urban Ministry Center. Moore Place currently houses 120 residents and UMC has housed more than 500 chronically homeless men and women since 2012.
