HELP AND HOPE TO PREVENT HOMELESSNESS
Humanities Foundation’s ShelterNet helps families and individuals who have suffered a crisis or setback by providing emergency financial assistance to enable them to stay in their homes or to prevent the loss of essential utility services such as gas, power or water.
“…I could not have helped my client and her family keep their home without you. I am so glad we have wonderful agencies like yours around…” – Christi Crockett, Charleston County DSS
