On May 22, 2019, we hosted our 26th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at the exclusive Golf Club at Briar’s Creek on John’s Island. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the community.
For almost 30 years, Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach has assisted our neighbors in need, regardless of faith or creed, helping them achieve their desired path to self-sufficiency in partnership with other community agencies and over 360 volunteers. We continuously work to address the root causes of poverty and create systemic change by providing basic and emergency resources, education and specific health programs such as free dental and prenatal care, food, clothing and financial assistance, hot lunches five days a week at Neighborhood House in Downtown Charleston, and diverse educational opportunities like our afterschool and summer camp programs, money management, GED and ESL classes. We focus on the whole person; therefore, we wrap our services around clients and families wherever possible and where we can’t, we coordinate with broader community organizations. It is our calling to be a part of collaborative solutions so that everyone in our community can thrive.
