Emergency Services Guide: Housing
At Richland Library, we work each day to care for the individuals and families in our community. We understand families need books to read, a place to learn and, sometimes, even housing services. In the Columbia area there are many organizations working to provide these services.
Here are a few of the organizations in the Columbia area working to provide housing:
- SC Housing Search
This website is a free place to list and find affordable housing in SC.
- HUD- US Department of Housing and Urban Development
This website provides an affordable apartment search.
- St. Lawrence Place | 2400 Waites Rd | (803)256-3999
Provides shelter for families. Adults must be employed.
- SC Housing- Voucher Program
This website provides information on the Section 8 voucher program. At this time families are waiting an estimated 3-5 years to receive assistance. These delays are due to the large number applicants on the waiting list and the federal funding level.
