City with Dwellings


City with Dwellings: A Community First Initiative works to end the crisis of homelessness in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, providing a unique platform for volunteers across the community to connect and build relationships with individuals who are experiencing homelessness.

We are a cooperative organization who works to engage our whole community in the effort to end homelessness in Winston-Salem, NC. Our diverse partnership of congregations, colleges, civic groups, and individuals – including persons formerly homeless – come together, empower, and humanize those who face homelessness, provide winter emergency shelter and outreach services, and strategically plan how we can integrate important homeless resources in our dynamic city and its developing downtown.

We seek to form generative relationships among different populations.
We aim to innovate problem-solving with businesses, police, city servants, and health care professionals.
We strive to leverage our city’s strengths to address the challenges of homelessness.
