VETERAN SERVICES

IT TAKES AN ARMY TO HELP HOMELESS VETERANS.

One80 Place provides Veteran Services to both men and women who have served, or live with a spouse who has served, in the military.

WE’RE HERE TO HELP

If you are (or know of) a Veteran in need of housing assistance, contact our Supportive Services Assistance Line in the Charleston area (843) 212-8668. For the Midlands area call our Columbia office at 1-(888)-820-1155.

FACTS

– 12% of the adult homeless population are Veterans; 20% of the male homeless population are Veterans.
– 1.5 million Veterans are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dismal living conditions or substandard housing.

Call for an appointment to visit either of our locations in Charleston or Columbia.

Our Director of Veterans Services is a Navy Veteran who understands the challenges military Veterans face in the civilian world. Currently our success rates assisting Veterans exceed the national average by approximately 10%.

Veterans staying with us are served three meals a day and have access to medical care, counseling, legal services, educational programs and limited financial support for rental assistance.

The Department of Veterans Affairs also works with One80 Place to offer additional services to homeless Veterans to up their chances of returning to stable life in a home of their own.

Currently we have two dormitories with beds for 40 men and 10 women dedicated to Veterans. One80 Place is the only homeless organization in South Carolina with beds dedicated to female Veterans.
