Greater Charlotte / South Carolina
About one-third of all adult homeless people have served in the U.S. armed forces. Some may be disabled or may have a diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder or other combat related illness making it difficult to find consistent work and housing. To address the need for quality housing, LFS Carolinas provides shelter for homeless veterans through transitional facilities in North and South Carolina.
The program includes employment and benefit assistance, transportation to and from medical appointments and job interviews, counseling, re-integration into the community and support from local faith groups. The objective is to transition the veterans to independent living as soon as possible. Follow up services will be given to the veterans by our own trained staff, as well as partner organizations.
