Emergency Services

We help families in crisis quickly access the support services they need. After assessing their circumstances, we can direct these families to rapid rehousing, services from other area nonprofits, or Family Shelter, our Emergency Shelter.

Transitional Housing

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.

Affordable Housing

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.

Community Bridge

We advocate on behalf of homeless families in a number of ways, representing their voices whenever important decisions are made in our community and in local/regional government conversations. We’re also working to build a full, healthy continuum of service providers via a powerful community initiative called The Roundtable.


82% of homeless families who receive assistance only need it once.
