From individuals experiencing homelessness to families saving for their first home, your support of United Way helps everyone find their path to safe and stable housing. 

Home ownership is one of the best investments and wealth generators for families, yet population growth and the real estate boom in Greenville County is putting a disproportionate strain on low-income families.
The market has had difficulty keeping up with demand, which has increased the competition and cost for housing. Median household income is not keeping up with cost, decreasing the affordability of housing for families in Greenville County.

13,163 households in Greenville County spend more than half their income on rent.

It is estimated that Greenville County needs about 20,000 low-cost housing units to meet the current demand.

Our Focus Areas

Preserve & produce

Use legislative, operational and financial methods to facilitate the construction of more housing and preserve and improve quality of units that are already affordable.

Access to private market housing

Increase low- and moderate-income households' access to private market housing.

Housing stability & displacement

Increase housing stability for tenants at risk of displacement and homelessness.

Permanent supporting housing

Connect individuals experiencing chronic homelessness with stable, unconditional housing and support services.
