South Carolina transitional housing programs.

South Carolina residents that are being evicted can get assistance from transitional housing programs and case management services. The resources are also an option for individuals that are currently homeless. Several services are offered as part of these housing programs.

Dozens of non-profits, churches, and charities provide help from these resources. Some of the clients can include veterans, single parents, and children. However many of the programs will provide some form of assistance to residents regardless of their age, gender or background. If a center can’t meet your needs, then they may provide referrals to other South Carolina housing programs or maybe even government support such as section 8. There are also a wide range government services, even including free housing assistance.

The demand for any type of transitional housing is very high, both in South Carolina and nationwide. Sometimes clients may need to stay in a shelter first. Regardless, residents may be able to get help from these resources, and it can also include food, case management, job search assistance and more.
