Let’s end it. Family homelessness is a temporary problem, not a chronic condition. However, federal funding has evaporated for many family programs as HUD’s focus, and that of many local funders, has turned to chronically homeless men and women. As a result, families have fallen through the cracks. We can change this. By helping parents and children achieve lasting independence, our organization seeks to eradicate family homelessness. Join us.
We help families who have suffered a setback quickly access the support services they need. After assessing their unique circumstances, we can direct these families to rapid rehousing and/or services from other area nonprofits.
St. Lawrence Place is a 30-home community offering support services, life skills training and up to two years of transitional housing for families experiencing homelessness.
Live Oak Place provides affordable housing to at-risk families, helping them bridge the gap from transitional housing to independent living. We currently have homes across Columbia and Richland County.
We convene service providers to ensure homeless families' needs are met across the continuum. We also advocate on behalf of homeless families whenever important decisions are made in our community, and in local/regional government conversations.
