Favor Foundation



Food - Clothes - Resume & Job search assistance

Welcome To the Favor Foundation Family

Favor Foundation is the product of a shared vision given to Mrs. Shontia Gilliard and Mrs. Glenda Backman. These women and their families have a heart for helping others.

Due to the overwhelming homeless situation in Charleston, SC it is important that we partner with local businesses and supporters to provide the basic necessities that so many go without.

 It is also our goal to assist in finding sustainable employment and permanent homes that will give families a fresh start.


Your donations of non perishable goods, gently used clothing, toiletry items, bottled water, your time and your prayers is imperative. 

We have been able to help over 300 families this year already.  

Thank you for helping us achieve our goal.
