Homelessness happens to members of our community for a variety of reasons. The City of Winston-Salem, along with nonprofit agencies, governments, and concerned individuals work together through a unique partnership, known as the Continuum of Care (CoC) to eliminate homelessness in our community. 


“If you or someone you know is experiencing or is at risk of experiencing homelessness, call United Way’s 211 referral line to see what services are available (just dial 2-1-1).”


By administering funding for nonprofit agencies, who provide homelessness prevention services, the City utilizes federal and state grants to support emergency shelter operations and provide rental vouchers to persons experiencing or who are at threat of experiencing homelessness. Additional services include transitional and supportive housing operations and case management for community members experiencing homelessness.
