Time to Change
Georgetown Jobs Connection
A “one stop jobs program” for Georgetown County that combines the assets of the non-profit agencies in our community led by Helping Hands, A Father's Place and Palmetto Goodwill.
This program gives those in poverty (specifically the unemployed and underemployed) a "hand up" toward achieving independent, productive lives. For success, we strive for excellence in a four step process: recruitment, job preparation, job placement and job advancement.
Life Skills Program for Women
An incentive driven, year-long program of support and training for women who are able and willing to become self-sufficient. The program supports participants in their personal, professional, and spiritual growth.
Johanna Verner, our Life Skills Coordinator, leads this effort with the goal of providing information, discipline and encouragement for those navigating the magnitude of sacrifice and change required to move from poverty to self-sufficiency.
Key Success Measures: employment, transportation, educational advancement and health care
A growing number of local churches covenant with us by providing prayer, volunteers, food, clothing, and financial support to our ministry.
