In this Upliff Highlights, we talk with Leadership Aiken County​ Class of 2017 about their class project benefiting Nurture Home​, Mental Health America of Aiken County’s shelter for homeless women and their children.

On Friday, June 9, 2017, the class held a groundbreaking ceremony for The Cottage they are constructing on Nurture Home’s property in Aiken, South Carolina.

The Cottage will be a transitional residence for some of the women when they are ready for a more independent lifestyle but still need a structured environment before moving out on their own.
