Woodforest National Bank® Proudly supports Transitions Recovery Center

Established in 2008 and opened for business in 2011, Transitions Recover Center, located at the corner of Main and Calhoun streets in downtown Columbia, is the largest and most comprehensive homeless center in the Midlands. As its name suggests, the mission of Transitions is to help people transition from homelessness into stable and independent living situations as part of becoming productive members of the community.

In the 5 years since Transitions opened its doors, Transitions continues to develop new programs to meet the health, job, and life skills training needs of the homeless population. On August 1st, it began a pilot program to address a very important need that was going unmet in our area — support for unaccompanied youth, ages 18-24. Some are homeless because they had aged out of the Foster Care system, others because they had been disowned by their family. But the staff and collaborative partners that work with Transitions, have stepped in to provide the safe and stable environment our homeless youth need while they receive the help needed to move forward in a positive direction with their lives.

Woodforest is proud to support Transitions. We recently stopped by the Center to present a grant check and were treated to a personal tour of the 260 bed facility, by CEO Craig Currey and Development Vice President ,Liz Igleheart. We encourage everyone to call for a tour and to look at volunteer opportunities at Transitions. Check out its website at www.transitionssc.org to learn more. Columbia is very lucky to have this organization, which recently received the prestigious 5 Star Charity Navigator rating, and Woodforest is glad we can be a part of making a positive difference in our community.
