A local homeless medical respite center launched a crisis campaign to stay open last week.

Samaritan House, a landing place for Charlotte’s homeless population during their time of need for care and healing, declared itself to be in a state of crisis on Friday due to unexpected financial challenges.

The nonprofit is shutting down intake for 90 days and potentially indefinitely.

Why it matters: Samaritan House is Charlotte’s only homeless shelter that provides medical resources, such as social workers, to help get health insurance to those healing and in need of housing.
