Who We Are
SC Thrive is a statewide nonprofit offering solutions to South Carolinians in need of resources but facing a multitude of barriers. We provide a variety of training and technology to other direct service organizations so they can more effectively help people access these resources. We meet people where they are in life, addressing their needs holistically to move them toward stability, then self-sustainability. SC Thrive focuses on food security, healthcare resources and financial wellness through work supports such as SNAP, Medicaid and tax credits, like the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credits. In addition, SC Thrive offers Mental Health First Aid training to provide awareness and education about mental health, reducing stigma and myths surrounding mental health. We train laypeople to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health crises or issues, offering guidance on assisting someone experiencing a situation and steps to refer them to professional help. From 2010 to January 2017, SC Thrive and our Partner Sites have brought over $437 million back to over 228,000 South Carolinians in the form of tax refunds and work supports for which they qualified, but could not apply for due to lack of knowledge or ability to navigate the complex application procedures. We appreciate your assistance in making South Carolina stronger and look forward to working with you. We are all in this together—let's help South Carolinians thrive!
