About the Homeless Coalition of Cherokee County
HCCC provides practical solutions toward sustained housing stability. The three pillars of the Homeless Coalition of Cherokee County are relief, recover, and restore.
Relief: Operation Roof
There will be seven nights at a hotel, short-term housing, and networking services for those in need. Since 2021, Operation
Roof has provided more than 1,200 nights of shelter plus hotel-friendly meal kits and personalized resources to more than 325 people.
Recover: Path to Home
Launched in 2023, Path to Home offers three months of stay in an extended-stay hotel to families identified in Operation Roof. Through personalized case management, HCCC works to enhance job stability, improve budgeting skills, and provide additional comprehensive support.
Restore: Restoration Village (coming soon)
The Restoration Village program will provide resources for overcoming homelessness in a tiny home village featuring community space, park/play area, and on-site staff. Qualified women and children will reside in single-family units for up to 2 years with access to initial program resources such as education, mental health services, and mentorship – all under the guidance of a family coach/case manager.
