About the Fund

The Fund was started by the non-profit Palmetto Project in February 2016 at the encouragement of Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg.

Today, along with Mayor Tecklenburg, the Fund is supported by Mayor Keith Summey of North Charleston, Mayor Will Haynie of Mount Pleasant, and Mayor Wiley Johnson of Summerville through the Mayors’ Commission on Homelessness and Affordable Housing.

The Mayors’ Commission’s philosophy is “Housing First.”  That means that basic housing is an essential first step in assisting homeless citizens in finding a path to stable and independent living.

The Homeless to Hope Fund provides support to community organizations and service providers who help these homeless with that first step… and a plan to move forward.
