There are over 1,600 men, women and children in the Lowcountry who are unsheltered or engaged in housing supports. The Homeless to Hope Fund works with a network of service providers as part of the Lowcountry Continuum of Care to address their needs. They also work toward long-term plans to reduce homelessness and address the unique needs of individuals.
