Public Private Partnership Providing Hope in a South Carolina Low Country Neighborhood
Submitted by Kristine Foye
Community's Hope Impact Center, which opened on June 2, 2018 in Monck's Corner, is a partnership between Berkeley County Habitat for Humanity and the Reformed Episcopal Church. The Center provides after school programs, job training, senior programs and community events.
The Habitat affiliate, which has built 14 homes in the neighborhood, envisioned the Center helping to achieve one of its goals of connecting families to the community. Last year, Lowes Home Improvement awarded the Habitat affiliate a $70,000 grant to get the project going.
"Habitat for Humanity of Berkeley Country is doing amazing work to provide decent and safe housing for families, stabilizing neighborhoods into places people want to call home," said Kristine Foye, Columbia Field Office Director, who visited the area on August 24. "Community's Hope Impact Center is providing a greater sense of camaraderie and is creating opportunities for neighborhood residents."
