Toby’s Place will become a safe haven for the “hidden homeless” throughout the Midlands.  Their goal is to employ a holistic approach in helping equip women with life skills needed for responsible living in order to help provide a sustainable life for them and their children. With the help of our generous community, Oliver Gospel Mission will build and operate this new center with an emphasis on transforming lives empowered by the gospel of Jesus Christ and equipping women with the skills to maintain stable, secure employment and housing.  Women will have the opportunity to meet with professional licensed counselors, attend life skill classes, and learn job skills to get them back in the work force. Our goal is to break the generational homeless cycle for the homeless women and homeless women with children who will walk through the doors of Toby’s Place. 

July 30 -  St. Lawrence Place               

St. Lawrence Place is a 30-home community where homeless families can find skills and shelter that foster independence and free them from the grip of poverty.

Founded by Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in 1989, St. Lawrence Place is a primary program of Homeless No More, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to the offering of a seamless continuum of services and housing to homeless and at-risk families in the midlands of South Carolina. Those living in the St. Lawrence Place program pay income-based rent, maintain employment or continue their education, remain drug and alcohol free, volunteer within the community and live in a structured environment that demands accountability. Qualified families reside in two-bedroom units — including two ADA-compliant apartments — with assessments every three months to evaluate growth within the program. Residents participate in case management and age-appropriate key life skill classes, working through a custom family life plan created to address their specific needs.
