Our Men's Center serves men experiencing homelessness and addiction in the Columbia, SC area. The three-story building houses our Refresh, Rebuild, and Recovery programs. All our programs are centered around life transformation for every participant, seeing men take steps toward a hope-filled future.
Our 24/7 emergency services offered to men in need in the heart of downtown Columbia.
Our 30-day program is designed as the first step towards a bright future, whether you need a temporary place or connections to our long-term programs. Each guest receives breakfast and dinner, a hot shower, a clean bed, storage for their belongings, and spiritual enrichment through nightly chapel.
Refresh services provided at the Men's Center:
Our transitional program for employed men experiencing homelessness helps stabilize their living situation.
This program is offered to men who already hold a full-time job (defined as working over 30 hours a week), find themselves in a state of homelessness, and have completed the Refresh 30-day program. Due to the lack of affordable housing in our community, a person may still be unable to afford living expenses despite working a full-time position.
Through life-skills classes, fitness classes, and faith-based programming, we assure that members of our programs receive the holistic care they need to improve themselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Rebuild services provided at the Men's Center:
Our addiction recovery program offers long-term support for men stuck in a cycle of addiction and poverty.
This program is designed to provide holistic care for men battling a substance addiction alongside homelessness, equipping them to live sober, successful lives. The program is rooted in the gospel and love of Christ and focuses on healing spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical traumas that perpetuate addiction. Participants also receive one on one guidance from a life coach and are quickly connected to a local church to start building community and support. Career readiness is woven throughout the program so that upon leaving, men are equipped to sustain permanent housing and full-time employment.
