Greenville Women Giving

Greenville Women Giving offered United Ministries an $80,000 grant for its Interfaith Hospitality Network’s homelessness ministry.

Using the grant, United Ministries plans to use the grant to purchase two single-family homes in Greenville County as interim homes for at least 40 to 80 homeless families over the next 20 years, according today's news release.

“United Ministries is incredibly honored to be selected by Greenville Women Giving as a grant recipient this year,” Lizzie Bebber, executive director of United Ministries, said in the release. United Ministries works with people on their journey to financial self-sufficiency. 

Aside from housing, WestEnd Greenville’s United Ministry also offers crisis assistance, education and employment mentorship to individuals in need.

Philanthropic collective Greenville Women Giving has offered 123 community grants totaling more than $6.5 million since its founding in 2006.

“Through Greenville Women Giving’s partnership, we will impact generations by providing families with home, haven and hope, and more financially secure futures,” Bebber said in the release
