Men’s Shelter of Charlotte The mission of the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte (MSC) is to be dedicated to providing safe emergency shelter while working to end homelessness for each man. For 30 years MSC has ensured that homeless men have access to shelter while also providing them with meals, showers, clothing, and other Caption describing basic necessities. The key to their picture or graphic. success going forward is helping homeless men obtain and maintain both income and housing. Many of the men they serve are disabled, veterans, or elderly. For others, however, employment income provides the path to self-sufficiency, yet they have barriers that make finding jobs on their own difficult. MSC is working hard to provide better access to all income avenues for the men we serve. Without some form of income, housing is impossible. www.mensshelterofcharlotte.org and http://schools.cms.k12.nc.us/ oaklawnMS/Pages/Default.aspx
