Property owners struggling to get supplies, affordable housing impacted

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A nonprofit that helps place people into affordable housing says the national supply chain shortage is slowing its efforts.

Joy Harris manages multiple properties in the Charlotte area. She also partners with agencies such as Social Serve to help people who’ve been struggling to find homes they can afford.

Harris says the delays on items such as countertops, cabinets and flooring are devastating to people living in shelters or in their cars waiting on an apartment.
