Mission: To create a community where individuals affected by homelessness, poverty, or unemployment are empowered through our transitional programs and transformed by the love and ministry of Jesus Christ.
Population Served: Men, women, and children affected by homelessness, poverty, or unemployment.
History: Created in 1993, THC was the vision of a resident of the Double Oaks neighborhood, which had been identified by the New York Times as one of the most violent in the US. After her husband was shot and killed, she dedicated herself to transforming a former drug house and establishing outreach ministries. Now, THC operates a 7.5 acre campus that provides wrap-around services and resources designed to break the cycle of homelessness and housing insecurity in Charlotte.
Approach: THC’s program, Charlotte’s Transformation Passport, is a Christ-centered, life skill-building program integrating the principles of Eight Dimensions of Wellness and practical incentives. For ten years, The Harvest Center has served more than 200,000 meals to the homeless and graduated 200 adult men and women through their scattered, transitional housing model.
