St. Peter's Homes-McCreech Place was the first SRO for homeless men developed and operational in Charlotte. There have been other organizations to follow with additional supportive housing for the homeless, but McCreech Place is still the "beacon". The first addition to the orginal structure is now underway.
I served on the Board of St. Peter's Homes, Inc. for several years and love the work they do. McCreesh Place is the supportive apartment community developed and managed by St. Peter's Homes, Inc. for formerly homeless and disabled men in Charlotte, NC. The men are safe and warm living in a community with other men. St. Peter's Homes provides professional counsellors in house who work with each resident to create a plan to get their lives healthy and productive and to reach the goals set by the men. These men are smart, funny, joyful, giving, enthusiastic and a pleasure to get to know. I love being a part of the uplifting spirit at McCreesh Place. More to come - St. Peter's Homes is building an addition to McCreesh Place now and looking forward to another community in the near future. Lots of work to do - lots of people who need a safe, warm home.
