Public Benefits

“Public Benefits” or income supports help families maintain a quality of life when they are unable to secure work or have a barrier to income. Benefits can include direct cash assistance, food assistance, healthcare. It can also mean help with transportation, childcare or other supportive services that a household needs to make ends meet. Our work in this area shapes our mission and focus. You can learn more about our work on Public Benefits in South Carolina and current projects on our public benefits page.
