Overview

Breaking the Cycle

At Greer Relief, we believe in empowerment over dependency. Our programs offer a hand up, not just a handout. Our mission is to tackle the root causes of the challenges our neighbors face, working together to overcome obstacles and break the cycle of need.

We partner with individuals who are committed to transforming their lives from dependency to independence. Through collaboration and support, we develop personalized plans to address underlying issues and foster sustainable change.

Our programs are not a safety net for those unwilling to take steps toward self-improvement. They are designed for those who are slipping through the cracks of traditional support systems, ready to embrace positive change.

Far too often, our neighbors suffer in silence, hesitant to seek help due to fear or shame. At Greer Relief, we provide a welcoming environment where individuals can find the assistance and support they need, regardless of the challenges they face.

How It Works

Greer Relief and Resources Agency, Inc. offers short-term emergency assistance to neighbors in need, emphasizing support over sustenance. Our approach revolves around three key methods:

01Case Management

Each neighbor receives personalized attention through our case management system. This allows our team to thoroughly assess individual situations and tailor solutions for maximum effectiveness. By prioritizing confidentiality and individualized care, we aim to empower our neighbors to break free from reliance on our services.

02Referral

Following assistance, Greer Relief facilitates connections with additional resources and agencies that can provide ongoing support. We maintain strict confidentiality to ensure our neighbors’ privacy and dignity are upheld throughout the process.

03Essential Support

Our case managers evaluate the need for assistance aiding our neighbors in times of crisis, which may cover essentials such as:

  • Utility Bills
  • Rent
  • Mortgage
  • Heating Oil
  • Life-Sustaining Prescription Medications
  • Food
  • Hygiene Products
  • Household Supplies

04Next Step Education

Reaching Every Neighbor Every Way (RENEW) is a comprehensive education, enrichment, and life skills program open to all, irrespective of their service area. RENEW is designed to enhance the well-being and nutrition of our neighbors in need by providing opportunities to acquire knowledge and develop skills that promote healthy living.

Participants in RENEW earn credits for the classes they attend, which can be redeemed for items at the RENEW Shoppe. This innovative program aims to empower individuals to make positive lifestyle changes and build a foundation for a healthier future.

RENEW is available to residents of both Greenville and Spartanburg counties, offering a range of classes on topics such as Financial Wellness, Job Skills, and Healthy Living.  Become a Volunteer Educator, contact our RENEW Program Coordinator.  Join us on the journey to a healthier, more fulfilling life!
