Our History

Since 1985 the vision for the creation of Hospitality House of Charlotte began, and our mission has changed very little since. We are proud to continue the legacy our founders and donors have brought to our home.



Mecklenburg Medical Society Auxiliary surveyed the community for unmet healthcare needs.


Mecklenburg Medical Auxiliary and Endowment (MMAE) purchased a home on Scott Avenue with the help of the community. This became known as MMAE’s Inn (pronounced May’s).


The Medical Auxiliary Endowment Board oversaw MMAE for 14 months until the Inn was ready to take its first step towards independence.  In June 1986, Articles of Incorporation were completed.


Nonprofit status was established and the first Executive Director, Nancy Underwood, was hired.


Second location was added at St. John’s Baptist Church.


MMAE changed its name to Hospitality House of Charlotte.


New home on Scott Avenue opened.  This combined both locations under one roof.


HHOC has served more than 66,000 guests from 50 states and 39 countries.
