Our goal is to fulfill immediate client needs while minimizing risk to our volunteers, clients and staff.  We continue to provide Food, Utility and Medical Assistance to our clients with all interviews conducted over the phone.  No new appointments will be made for anyone seeking clothing assistance at this time.  Senior Food will still occur the third Saturday of the month in Aiken, Jackson, Graniteville and Wagener.

Please contact Client Services (803-642-5919) during the hours of 11 am – 3 pm for an appointment or to inquire about your existing appointment.

Our team will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and plans will be updated as needed.
