Right before the Christmas holiday, The Housing Partnership received an emergency request for housing. A disabled senior was being displaced from her apartment near Central Avenue after the property was purchased by an investor for redevelopment. She needed housing near transit that was affordable for her low, fixed income. Such a request is nearly impossible to accommodate in Charlotte’s current affordable housing climate because the wait times for subsidized units for low-income seniors are measured in years rather than months.
