There are some Section 8 apartments about a 1/4 mile west of the intersection of HWY 16 North and Mt. Holly-Huntersville Rd. They are fairly new, within walking distance of a Harris Teeter and drug store, cleaners and restaurants. Bus line, if needed, is close by as well. I'm not sure which high school is assigned there, (Hopewell or West Meck probably) but here are also charter schools in the region if you choose that route. Good luck.
