Our mission is to get all the homeless off the streets of Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties of South Carolina in 2021, and treat them with dignity while providing shelter and social services 100% free. Our services are designed to empower those in need as they achieve self-sufficiency.
Covid - 19 IS a CRISIS, a NATURAL DISASTER, and we are here to offer DISASTER RELIEF.
We hope our resource and advocacy contributions will bring a significant attention to the massive need for homeless shelters during the covid-19 pandemic and assist the homeless in achieving self-sufficiency.
Our vision is that every man, woman, and child experiencing homelessness will have the opportunity to heal, learn and grow, build the foundation for a brighter future, and blossom as self-sufficient individuals or family units.
Homeless people ARE STILL PEOPLE.
