AgFirst Farm Credit Bank recently gave a $50,000 grant to Transitions, a homeless recovery center in Columbia.

The money will help Transitions continue its mission of moving people from homelessness to permanent housing.

"We are very happy about the generosity of one of our new business neighbors," said Transitions CEO Craig Currey. "The money could not come at a better time for us and will be put to good use.

"It is through the support of concerned community members, be they corporations, individuals, civic groups, or houses of worship, that Transitions will be able to provide the services and tools for the homeless of the greater Midlands area to improve their lives, move them from the streets with gainful income and permanent housing," Currey said.

AgFirst has purchased the Bank of America Plaza on Columbia’s Main Street and plans to move its operations into that building, which is about a block away from the Transitions center.
