NSSC will provide specific information about resources and services available in different parts of South Carolina to homeless persons and others in need. NSSC Samaritan and Lazarus Mentors will have personal contacts at employment and social service/ministry organizations that can be helpful resources for parish clergy and staff.

Churches will be able to refer persons (who approach them for help) to NSSC Mentors for a third party needs assessment interview that often will identify persons who are genuinely in need and interested in making changes in their lives. It can also lead to ongoing participation in the Next Step Program.
