Unemployment can cause a great deal of mental distress. The Charleston County Human Services Committee helps remove barriers to employment through the Project Pride program. Participants in the program learn valuable skills needed for conducting effective job searches, including assistance filling out job applications, resume preparation, and interview skills.

By helping low-income residents find adequate employment, the agency stabilizes their financial wellbeing and improves their mental health functioning.

Be a Mentor Now is a Charleston-based non-profit that places a positive, stable adult role model with a child who experiences life difficulties due to poverty, homelessness, mental illness, or other significant issues. Mentors meet with children once a week and provide encouragement, support, and guidance that help at-risk children reach their full potential in school and in life. Helping improve the lives of others is also greatly beneficial to mentors, who can take pride in their positive influences on young people. To apply to be a mentor, call 843-554-5987.4
