Transitions Homeless Center Plans to Open Adult Day Center in Columbia
Transitions Homeless Center, a Columbia-based organization that provides access to housing, hot meals, and showers for homeless men and women, is looking to expand its services by opening an adult day care center near the Old Dutch Square Mall.

Last summer, the organization purchased the Dutch Plaza property across the street from the mall and is now waiting to start construction.

According to Craig Currey, the CEO of Transitions Homeless Center, the organization is excited to convert the vacant buildings into a usable space that will benefit the community.
The Columbia Planning Commission has reviewed the formalities that Transitions Homeless Center will need to complete for its latest project.

The property is currently classified as mixed-use corridor in a priority investment area and designated community activity center in zoned GC by Richland County.

The adult day center will be open to anyone and provide five hours of care for about 24 people each day.

The building will also have 22 apartments, with a focus on ADA compliant spaces to serve those with disabilities and the elderly.
The funding for the adult day center will come from donations and proceeds collected from apartment rent and fees for the center.

Transitions Homeless Center will be accepting construction bids soon, and the project is expected to begin in late May or June, with construction continuing through October or November.

The organization hopes to have some units open by the fall.
