A snapshot of homelessness in Kershaw County
New Day On Mill
New Day on Mill is part of the United Way of Kershaw Countys efforts to end homelessness in Kershaw County. The cottages are part of a transitional housing program for women and children who are homeless, offering a place to live for three to six months while they work to overcome obstacles to becoming self-sufficient community members. - photo by Tenell Felder
