Together SC and HopeHealth are partnering to connect nonprofit leaders in Orangeburg, Williamsburg, Florence, and Clarendon Counties, with a focus on organizations offering services to address the five critical areas of impact: 1) Economic Stability, 2) Education, 3) Health and Health Care, 4) Neighborhood and Built Environment, and 5) Social and Community Context.

Through a series of engagements Together SC aims to help HopeHealth build truly collaborative partnerships. Learn More about the Initiative.

This will be the first of two Zoom calls to introduce interested nonprofits to the HopeHealth team and program objectives so they can consider benefits of entering into a partnership with HopeHealth. Lighthouse Ministries ED Cecilia Meggs will be joining us to share how her organization has partnered with HopeHealth.
