United Way receives funding

COLUMBIA — The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina recently awarded its Community Enrichment grants for 2018. The Foundation’s mission to address poverty in all of its forms is reflected in its decision-making around Community Enrichment grants. These grants are designed to support nonprofits whose comprehensive services are based on experience, research and evidence-based models to break the cycle of poverty and provide long-term life change. These grants are awarded once per year and are intended to be expended in a twelve month period.

A total of the 22 community organizations received a total of $373,500 in funding from the Sisters of Charity Foundation including:

• United Way Of The Piedmont

The press release states that funding will support the financial stability navigator program which will provide intensive case management and care coordination to Spartanburg and Union County families who have started on the path to self-sufficiency through the UWP’s community-wide “2,000 in 2,000” Financial Stability Initiative. Barriers to be addressed through this programming include a lack of dependable and affordable transportation to work; unemployment or under-employment; a sudden loss of an income stream; insufficient money management skills and credit understanding; substandard or temporary housing; and no savings to cover unplanned or emergency expenditures.
