The Sharing House

Sharing House is a source of compassion and crisis assistance for our low-income neighbors in Transylvania County, where we offer food and fresh produce, gently-used clothes, rent and utility assistance, household goods, camping equipment, hot showers, a safe place to share stories of struggle and a refuge of social interaction.  We also empower people who seek paths to self-reliance, through special programs such as “Wheels to Work” and the Bridges Out of Poverty mentoring class called “Getting Ahead”.  Without the generous support of Lake Toxaway Charities, we would not be able to offer so many programs as we do today in our ministry.
