SC UpLift Community Outreach was established as a nonprofit corporation in South Carolina in February 2008 and operates as a tax-exempt community housing development organization in South Carolina.
Our goal is to improve conditions in distressed communities by employing three major strategies in conjunction with residents of these communities and key stakeholders.
1) Provide quality affordable housing for low to moderate-income residents;
2) Employ social enterprise as a strategy for community and economic development; and
3) Integrate financial literacy education training into existing life skills training programs.
We strive to help individuals and families, as they seek to improve their quality of life, through the provision of safe, secure, and affordable housing by working through collaborative relationships to create or re-create neighborhoods, that when connected to others, form environments that nurture human potential in all the major cornerstones of a community —educational, social, economic, environmental and health.
We believe that communities such as the ones we envision are the bedrock of our nation’s stability. Providing opportunities for quality, affordable housing to working families, and to the increasing number of our citizens who are homeless. Our top priority is to employ a range of strategies that have proven effective in achieving the goal of nurturing community environments.
