The mission of Community Link (est. 1929) is to enable individuals and families to obtain and sustain safe, decent and affordable housing.
Community Link is based out of Charlotte, North Carolina and operates in 21 counties across the state. We work with low-income individuals and families to help them secure safe, decent and affordable housing. Annually, we serve around 2,000 adults and children through our Homeless to Housing programs.
We offer free tax preparation for low-income individuals and families as well. Our VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program needs volunteers to be a greeter, site coordinator, or tax preparer. We will train you! Training begins each fall in preparation for the spring tax season.
VITA is part of our Asset Building program. We offer educational classes and one-on-one counseling to improve financial literacy and stability. Our goal in Asset Building is to help anyone become a first-time homeowner.
Community Link begin in 1929 as a Travelers Aid organization. We continue Travelers Aid by helping people get to safe home across the country. Typically, we serve people escaping domestic violence, stranded travelers, and people re-entering the world from incarceration. Annually, we help about 250 people through Travelers Aid.
