Homeless Services

Homelessness is not a crime. It is a community concern. There are vulnerable citizens in Greenville who need help.

The City of Greenville recognizes the need and is partnering with United Housing Connections to ensure resources are going directly to the professionals best equipped to help.

Keep your Change to Be the Change

The City of Greenville is partnering with United Housing Connections to offer a better way to help panhandlers.

Offering money to someone asking for help can keep that person trapped in the cycle of homelessness.

The Keep Your Change to Be the Change program is designed to funnel your generosity to organizations that can make a wide impact on the community.

There are signs with QR codes around the City's downtown and parks to make donating easy.

GET INVOLVED

In June of 2021, the Greenville Homeless Taskforce was formed by UHC to bring together downtown merchants, homeless outreach service providers, city staff and citizens. 

The goals of these monthly meetings are to provide education on the issues surrounding homelessness, brainstorm solutions for issues merchants and citizens are facing as they interact with our homeless citizens and share our successes as we work to house those experiencing homelessness. 

If you are interested in attending these meetings, contact COO Paulette Dunn at pdunn@uhcsc.org for more information.
