Our priority during this time is to remain a place of support for the community. This means we will continue with direct services as long as it is safe to do so to support those who will be greatly impacted by lack of wages, school closing, lack of access to food, etc. In order to safely support our community, staff and volunteers, we will be making some changes to our direct services programs until further notice. We will continue to provide updates as we have them on this page and our social media platforms.

  • Our Food Pantry, Clothing Closet (emergency basis only) and financial aid services are available Monday - Thursday 10:00am to 1:30pm at our Johns Island location, and Monday -  Thursday 9:00am - 11:30am at our Neighborhood House location.

  • Our OBGYN Clinic is open for Monday appointments only. For appointments, contact 843-559-4493.

  • Our Dental Clinic is open for appointments only on a limited basis. For appointments, contact 843-599-4493.

  • Our Neighborhood House Soup Kitchen will still be providing pick-up only bag lunches.

Donate Food: Donations of shelf-stable food will help families prepare for longer term impact. Donations can be brought to our Johns Island location (1684 Brownswood Road) or our downtown location, Neighborhood House (77 & 79 America Street) between 9am and 11am Monday through Friday.


Financial Contributions: As resources are directed to focus on meeting the unfolding needs and as the number of people we serve may increase,  your support will help us remain responsive to this crisis. An example of an immediate financial burden we have is the need to purchase additional food to provide bag lunches in our soup kitchen. To make a monetary donation, click here.
