Building a Cycle of Success

We all want Greenville County to be a thriving community where everyone has the opportunity to live a safe, stable and successful life. Meeting basic needs provides an important foundation, but it’s not enough. Focusing on long-term solutions that create opportunities and eliminate barriers is the only way to strengthen our community for generations to come.

Together, we are working to build a Cycle of Success where all children start school prepared to learn and go on to graduate,well-educated graduates find good jobs and create stable homes, and children from stable homes continue the cycle because they start school prepared to lean.

Our approach is unique:

  • We invest in programs and initiatives with proven records of success to deliver results.

  • We lead and support partnerships and collaborations to solve shared community challenges.

Last year, more than 132,000 people benefited from the programs and initiatives your contributions make possible, receiving assistance with Life Essentials or showing measured improvement in the key areas of School ReadinessHigh School Graduation or Financial Stability.
