Unique women’s shelter offers help in York County

ROCK HILL, S.C. — Women in York County without a house to stay in will soon have a place to call home while preparing for a better future.

More people are now living on the streets than the county has had in previous years, but now there’s help for some of those individuals.

South Carolina Reporter Tina Terry was in Rock Hill Monday as people celebrated the very unique shelter. It’s the first long-term one for single, childless women in York County.

It will start by housing about six women in April but eventually, it will house up to 15 women. They’ll be able to stay there for 12 to 24 months.
