Greenville Homeless Alliance Mobilizing Efforts to Address Economy Inn Housing Crisis


Fifty community leaders gathered at United Ministries to discuss the immediate housing crisis caused by the condemnation of Economy Inn.


An Emergency Response Team is now coordinating ongoing support for Nicholtown Missionary Baptist Church, Urban League of the Upstate, and other community agencies who are lending vital aid to those now displaced. For more information, or to make a contribution designated to this effort, contact Greenville Homeless Alliance at Resources will be coordinated by United Ministries and allocated through our community partners.


The Emergency Response Team is also working on permanent housing opportunities for the families recently displaced. If you are a landlord or property owner with available units please email for more information.


The group also established a Planned Response Team which includes the City of Greenville and Greenville County service providers to deal with similar situations in the future should they occur.
