Who We Are
The SWC Homelessness Coalition consists of community partners working together to provide resources, education and services to residents facing homelessness.
The mission is to eliminate homelessness in south Wood County. We plan to accomplish this mission by: understanding the issue, working together, educating the community, preventing homelessness, and funding solutions. We know that homelessness in south Wood County looks different than in large cities. Our local homeless are living in shelter, temporary foster care, transitional housing, or maybe with another family member of friend.
If you are concerned about homelessness in south Wood County please join us for this work.
