Many people in the world need help—a place to live, food to eat and adequate medical care—and some of them can be found in Charleston, South Carolina. While leaders say they will take care of their own, the Humanities Foundation actually does. For the last 26 years, the Humanities Foundation has created over 2500 units of affordable and workforce housing in the Southeast, including approximately 1000 apartments in the Lowcountry. Additional resident services programs are provided which also meet the needs of their residents. It all started back in 1992 when Tracy and Bob Doran decided to tackle homelessness. “We wanted to give back to our community, and we recognized the need for a nonprofit organization, with real estate experience, to develop affordable housing,” said Tracy.
