Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by partnering with our city in ways that put us in touch with those in Columbia who may be struggling in this season of their lives or who lack the support system needed to thrive. These neighbors may be elderly, single parents, individuals with disabilities, or facing financial instability. This year we are returning to serve in housing managed by the Columbia Housing Authority, including Oak Tower, a high-rise housing option for low-income seniors.
