Housing Families in Need
United Ministries’ Emergency Shelter program allows families with children aged 18 and younger to stay together as they confront the challenges of tackling homelessness. This program provides our participants with up to 12 weeks of shelter in a fully furnished apartment. Participants in the Emergency Shelter program work with an Emergency Shelter Partner to create and implement goals toward greater levels of self-sufficiency with the goal of obtaining and maintaining permanent housing.
Our program is unique, in that we offer one of the few emergency shelters in Greenville County where families can stay together, including single mothers with sons aged 11 or older and single fathers with children. Our program is also unique in that it can accommodate large families with multiple children and multi-generational families. There are currently 6 housing units dedicated to Emergency Shelter.
If you or someone you know needs assistance with Emergency Shelter, please call 864-271-3424. If it’s after office hours, please leave a message which will be answered within 24 hours (or 48 hours if on a weekend).
