Spectrum Cares

Spectrum Cares is committed to reaching further into our communities to help those in need, elevate positivity, and enhance programs dedicated to serving the people in our neighborhoods.

From helping at-risk youth to raising money and awareness for cancer research, from building homes for the homeless to securing safer futures for victims of domestic violence, we are passionate about supporting initiatives that change lives.

Each year, we bring our entire team together for a day of giving, team building, and celebrating! Over 100 team members, spouses, and significant others gathered in Charlotte and devoted 300+ hours to helping causes including The Relatives, Baby Bundles, and Second Harvest Food Bank. These hours together are some of the most memorable and meaningful time we spend as a company.

Community Service

We have a unique opportunity to truly impact our communities beyond the special places we create for our clients.

Habitat for Humanity’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Spectrum has partnered with Habitat over the years to help those in need of acquiring an affordable house they can call home.

Since partnering with Habitat for Humanity, Spectrum has built one complete home and assisted with building multiple other houses for families in the Charlotte area.

The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte operates Mecklenburg County’s only two year-round emergency shelters for men experiencing homelessness. They also provide an array of support services, including housing and employment aide, substance abuse and mental health counseling, peer support, medical respite, and dental services.

Spectrum coordinated the renovation of the men’s shelter in 2005 and their administrative office in 2018. Along with our partners, we were able to provide 220 men a safe place to sleep, shower, and receive services.
