(Greenwood, S.C., February 28, 2017) –
Self Regional Healthcare’s Community Health Committee has granted funds to three local organizations.
Beyond Abuse, a resource for victims of sexual and physical abuse that serves the needs of hundreds of adults and children throughout the Lakelands every year, received $98,000 from the Self Regional Healthcare Community Health Committee. The support will fund direct victim services, as well as go towards hiring a contract therapist who will ensure access to a Psychiatrist for medication management.
The Greenwood Community Indicators Project, through the Greenwood Community Foundation, is a project whose goals are to identify the community’s greatest needs, create collaboration and metrics to address those needs, and report their effectiveness to the community. They received $15,000 in funding from the Self Regional Healthcare Community Health Committee that will help improve five key focus areas in the community: knowledge for tomorrow, economic vitality, health and wellness, family vibrancy, and community enrichment and engagement.
Self Regional Healthcare’s Community Health Committee also granted Greenwood Place $33,750 to aid in the construction of a “Greenwood Clubhouse for Psychiatric Rehabilitation” in conjunction with Gateway Inc. and Clubhouse International. The
structure will serve adults living with mental illness and serves to improve the health of its members by decreasing isolation and increasing meaningful activity.
“Maintaining the health and well being in this community is of great importance to us,” said Selynto Anderson, Community Prevention & Wellness Services Manager at Self Regional Healthcare. “The funds we have provided to these thoughtful and hardworking organizations will ensure that the health and wellness of Greenwood and the Lakelands stays a top priority.”
