Total Care for the Homeless Coalition (TCHC) is a Continuum of Care with a service area that includes the South Carolina counties of Chesterfield, Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Georgetown, Horry, Kershaw, Lee, Marion, Marlboro, Sumter, and Williamsburg. Eastern Carolina Housing Organization (ECHO) is also able to serve qualifying Veterans in the North Carolina counties of Columbus, Robeson, and Scotland.
ECHO and other TCHC participating agencies serve eligible households that are referred directly from TCHC's Coordinated Entry System (CES). CES is a process that assesses, prioritizes, and refers households experiencing a housing crisis to available housing opportunities within TCHC’s service area. Because housing resources are limited, this process is designed to prioritize the most vulnerable individuals and families.
Completing this form in no way guarantees services beyond being accessed for the TCHC Coordinated Entry System. Everyone is encouraged to continue attempting to resolve their housing crisis through other community resources. 211 serves as a state resource guide and can be reached by dialing 211 from your mobile phone or visiting the 211.org website. You can learn more about TCHC and Coordinated Entry System at the TCHC Website here.
