CHA is one of nine public housing authorities in the country selected by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to participate in Jobs Plus, a federally-funded initiative to help adults living in large public housing communities enter the workforce.
CHA’s Jobs Plus site is Southside Homes, a 392-unit development on Charlotte’s west side. The Jobs Plus Office and Job Center is located at 316 Benjamin Street. Southside Homes residents interested in signing up for the Jobs Plus program may stop by any time weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
