Please note that First Friday Homeless Connect Event now takes place at Poynor Adult Education at 301 S. Dargan Street.

The First Friday Homeless Connect Event helps those who are homeless get connected to area services to improve their situation.

Lighthouse Ministries partners with local agencies in order to be able to provide more efficient services specifically to low-income families that are at risk of becoming homeless and the homeless population of Florence County by helping coordinate the First Friday Homeless Connect Event. This event involves a minimum of 28 agencies/organizations that work with this population.

To help us spread the word, please print the First Friday–2018 flyer and post it in a conspicuous place.
