Emergency shelter for my family (IHN)

United Ministries provides emergency shelter for families through our Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), which is a collection of Greenville-area congregations that transform classrooms and other church facilities to provide safe lodging, nourishing meals, and hospitality. Each congregation hosts guest families for a week at a time (Sunday to Sunday). Guest families do not have to split up by age or gender when living at an IHN host church.

If you need shelter for your family, please call us at (864) 271.3424 or fill out the form below to be contacted by a United Ministries representative.
