A quarantine shelter opens for people of the Upstate who are homeless and who have signs of the Coronavirus or who have tested positive.
The United Housing Connections (UHC) and the Upstate Continuum of Care have received almost $2 million in grants to develop and maintain the quarantine shelter.
The funding for this project comes from the Department of Administration’s Office of Economic Opportunity’s (OEO) Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program. Furthermore, Greenville County’s CARES Act funds will also be utilized.
To help this initiative, other organization providers are also collaborating. Miracle Hill Ministries, United Ministries, Triune Mercy Center, The Salvation Army, SHARE, DHEC, and Prisma Health all agreed to provide assistance.
The Quarantine Shelter will be located in a property owned by Phoenix Center in the west wing of the White Horse Road Academy.
