AmeriCorps is your moment to take the path less traveled, to break the status quo, to stop talking about the problem and be the solution.
The ability for low-wage earners to access benefits, save money toward building assets and receive the necessary tax credits are all strategies for helping people achieve financial independence. AmeriCorps Upstate seeks to address the current economic hardships of four counties in South Carolina by leveraging the unique strengths of the United Way system and community partners in order to make a difference in the lives of people.
The United Way partners and host sites that make up this collaborative understand the vital need for partnering, sharing best practices, leveraging resources, and getting measurable results. It is with that understanding that the collaborative has come together and committed itself to the AmeriCorps program, knowing that no one agency or program can do this most challenging work on its own.
Our AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 1,000 volunteers to provide financial stability services to low-income residents in Greenville, Pickens, Anderson and Laurens counties.
