What does a housing continuum look like in Charlotte-Mecklenburg?
The challenges related to housing instability and homelessness are linked. Households that are housing-cost-burdened (paying more than 30 percent of their income for housing) are often one crisis away from facing eviction and falling into homelessness. Once housing is lost, households face significant barriers to regaining housing and become caught in a cycle that perpetuates the problem. The report introduces the concept of a housing continuum linking the issues and data together in one place.
