Press Release

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has injected an additional $1.5 million into its Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) grant award to One80 Place.

Through these funds, One80 Place will seek to help even more Veterans who are in danger of losing their housing or are currently homeless, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Veterans do not need an eviction notice at this time to receive funding, as long as there are documented arrearages.

If you are a veteran or know a veteran located in South Carolina (in the Lowcountry or Midlands regions) who is in need of rental or utility assistance, or is homeless, call (843) 212-8668 (Lowcountry) or (803) 807-6727 (Midlands).

About One80 Place

During the winter of 1984, a group of business, civic, and religious leaders, led by Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley joined forces to found what is known today as One80 Place. One80 Place’s mission is to end and prevent homelessness one person, one family at a time. Today, One80 Place provides shelter to about 120 men, women, and children each night. In addition to a meal and a safe place to sleep, One80 Place provides a health clinic, legal services, employment and education services that remove the barriers to permanent housing.
