Welcome to The Navigation Center

Our Mission

The Navigation Center is Charleston’s home for a coalition of service providers working together to provide a hub of accessible, connected and quality resources for Charleston’s most vulnerable population – individuals experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. The Navigation Center leverages partnerships with over 30 non-profit providers in the Lowcountry through a care coordination model that connects people in crisis with employment, housing, transportation, education, health and wellness care, spiritual support, and mentoring.

Primary Resource Avenues
