THE STORY:

Changing Lives Starts with You.

Homelessness is a problem in every community. Lowcountry Home of Hope provides vital resources to this underserved population in Dorchester County. We have selected the Lowcountry Home of Hope as our class project. Members of LD 16' are working together to raise awareness, and empower Home of Hope with the necessary tools so they have the resources they need to succeed. We have identified four key needs that lead to success: Connection. Education. Transportation. Facilities

Connectivity. 

Residents find value by connecting with each other as they are in similar situations; each with the goal to get back on their feet.  Similarities naturally bring them together to create a support system and provide a sense of belonging.  The Leadership Dorchester Class of 2016 is raising money to create an environment that will allow them to connect with each other.  The space will include a paved area complete with a picnic table, firepit, and lighting. 

Transportation.

Residents of the Home of Hope are each given a bicycle for personal transportation. There is currently a need for a bike rack that will secure their property and protect it from the elements. Leadership Dorchester Class of 2016 raising money to purchase and install a bike rack for residents to safely lock their bicycles in a dry place. 

Education.

Our class is creating a program plan to assess the knowledge gap and to provide further education for the residents of the shelter. Several community partners have been identified to provide training, workforce development and career readiness workshops.

Facilities.

The Home of Hope would like to expand their bathroom facilities. There are currently no public restrooms available. An expansion will allow them to accommodate other area homeless individuals needing to clean up, and wash clothes. The new space will also allow the shelter to support individuals with disabilities.

 

*Any leftover project funds will go towards supporting the Lowcountry Home of Hope with their operating expenses.
