Men’s Shelter of Charlotte

Apr 1, 2019

The sun was out, our workload was light, and it was a FRIDAY! To top it all off we had the distinct honor of serving over 100 men a hearty meal. It doesn’t get much better than that.

That was our experience this past Friday when several of us from Epic Capital served lunch at the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte off of N. Tryon Street. It was good to be back having served there before, because each time we go we see a host of new faces, meet new volunteers and staff and always make a few new friends. We also leave with the clear understanding that the men we serve matter. They deserve the attention, the time, and the kinship that our engagement with them provides.

It is also obvious that they are grateful for our being there. If they don’t provide an all-out verbal “Thank you.”, you can see the gratitude in their eyes or in a subtle smile and a nod. We can’t even begin to imagine a day in the life of one of these men – the trials and tribulations of being homeless, but for a brief moment that split-second interaction is a meaningful connection. For them, and for us.

If you’ve never served there before, we would truly encourage you to do so. Yes it’s humbling, it’s a brief look into a world that so many of us pray never falls upon us. But your being there lets these men know that we care, that they truly are worth our time, and that they are worthy of so much more than where they are at that moment in time.

The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte operates two shelters, comprised of 405 beds. They provide the basic needs of shelter, meals, showers, laundry services, hygiene items, and access to a supportive staff. For more information or to schedule a volunteer effort visit their website at
