Trinity Presbyterian Church is all about putting our faith to work in making a difference in the community God has called us to serve. We have found a number of creative ways to help make a difference in our community and would love for you to come join us!
On the first Saturday of each month, you will find us out in the church parking lot repairing bicycles for anyone who comes by! We have found this to be an excellent way to meet our neighbors in addition to helping a lot of folks get their bikes back in shape to help them stay in shape!
If you need to get your bike rolling again, would like to help us make bike repairs, or would just like to come meet some new folks committed to making Travelers Rest a better place, come by, and check us out!
FOOTHILLS FAMILY RESOURCE
More times than not, people are introduced to Foothills Family Resources in a state of crisis which may come in the form of an empty cupboard, pending power disconnection or health concerns, amongst many others. FFR’s goal is to meet people in their crisis and provide the resources needed to overcome through our staff, partners and extensive connections throughout the county.
The Center for Working Families is a national movement developed by the Annie E. Casey Foundation as a way to move away from simple case management and referrals towards a model of relationship building, job training/placement, coaching and long term financial independence.
FFR teaches the soft skills necessary to stand out in a competitive market. From showing up ten minutes early and wearing professional attire, to interview skills and sending thank you letters, the Center for Working Families participants not only learn the skills needed, they practice them throughout their time in the program.
Just as with crisis services, FFR meets participants where they are, be that starting in-house with the Foothills Family Resources GED program, or moving straight into Center for Working Families , there is no timeline to success so long as participants continue to show a proper work ethic and drive.
North Greenville Crisis Ministry
We provide assistance while instilling hope and encouragement in a dignified, supportive, faith-centered manner to families and individuals in Greenville County, S.C. experiencing a crisis situation.
Having been established in 1983, we have evolved into a Ministry supported by generosity of our local churches, businesses, charitable organizations and individuals in our community. This support comes in the form of in-kind donations of food, clothing, and financial contributions. Our Ministry is non-denominationals and non-discriminatory, with an operational work force of volunteers coming from all walks of life.
Rebuild Upstate’s approach to affordable housing differs slightly from other affordable housing organizations, in that we don’t offer total new home construction or provide affordable rental housing. Instead, we focus solely on home preservation and repair as means to keep residents in their own homes.
When we understand the needs of the people inside a home, we gain a better insight to the repairs that will help them the most. Whether we’re addressing safe entry and exit by building a new wheelchair ramp or ensuring that a family is healthy and dry under a new roof, our goal with every home repair is to make sure the residents may remain comfortably in place for years to come.
