We all share a pride in Greenville – a thriving Community.
But our beloved Greenville is also home to avenues of brokenness with neighbors who have dreams and aspirations while finding themselves ensnared in a cycle of poverty and homelessness, encountering barriers to advancing their journey. This jeopardizes the future of their families. It also causes unnecessary costs to ripple across our community, impacting our businesses, our schools, and our healthcare providers.
