We rise by lifting others.

Help & hope for members of our community struggling with housing insecurity.


Who We Are


Greater Charlotte Rise (GCR) is a non-profit community development and outreach group looking to create positive change through unifying with community and individuals to build and grow. GCR's primary focus is to provide our housing insecure neighbors in the Charlotte area with the skills and support necessary to maintain long-term, stable housing. Our team is focused on reaching all housing insecure members of our community including men, women, children, non-binary, trans-folk, and families. GCR is committed to meeting people where they are in either their addiction, sobriety or as returning citizens without judgment.
