Review for Supportive Housing Communities Inc, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the friendships that I have formed with residents of McCreesh Place and with staff, Board members and other non-profits in Charlotte.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

build more McCreesh Places - widen the horizons for more people - allow them to be their own true selves.

Role:  Board Member & Served on the Board, helped find the location for McCreesh Place, worked for several years to put St. Peter's Homes on firm financial footing .
