About Us

The mission of the West Side Community Land Trust (West Side CLT) is to create permanently affordable housing with community-centered development in west Charlotte and beyond. Ultimately, producing staying power for low-income residents facing displacement due to gentrification and displacement- largely in historically black communities.

We value....

  • Empowerment- We strengthen one another.
  • Dignity- We respect each human life equally.
  • Integrity- We do what we say.
  • Collaboration- We work with, not for.
  • Progress- We deliver tangible results.
