The desperate struggle of men in our programs being able to find shelter birthed our Housing Program. Shield Ministries provides housing for men who are homeless as a result of their addictions, PTSD, and/or past criminal record. Applicants go through an intake process in which restrictions and program rules are clearly communicated. The intake process is designed to assess the individual's basic needs and desire for personal growth that will enable self-sufficiency. Housing is limited to those who are enrolled and actively participate in the Shield Ministries Program.
Random drug testing is administered frequently. Random inspections are also made by Shield Ministries and by Probation, Pardon, & Parole Services.
Weekly housing program fees of $110.00 per week are due each Friday for the upcoming week. Shield Ministries accepts referrals from local Probation, Pardon, and Parole services, Veteran's Administration, Department of Corrections, Charleston County Sheriff's Office, & Trident United Way.
