Columbia, S.C. (WOLO) — There’s now a new outdoor pavilion to help families at ‘Homeless No More of Columbia,’ a local nonprofit that helps homeless families stay together and become self-sufficient.

The pavilion offers a space for the children to safely play and be outside while remaining socially distanced.

“We have been utilizing outside for the entire summer because of e-learning and our hybrid summer camp. And we’re gearing up for the new school year,” said Lila Anna Sauls, President and CEO of Homeless No More.

With COVID-19, there’s been an increased focus on spending time outside. The pavilion will also be used for online learning as schools resume.

“Because of the generosity of Ritedose Corporation, we now have a new pavilion where our students and our families can learn, play and enjoy the outdoors with shade,” said Sauls.
