Charleston Area Service Collaborative
 
 
 
VISTA members with the Charleston Area Service Collaborative (CASC) serve with a cohort of 25 VISTAs placed at various organizations throughout the Charleston area. Each VISTA member will be placed with a single organization for the duration of their service year. The vision of the project is to cultivate, strengthen, and support programs benefitting low-income citizens by building the capacity of sites to carry out and sustain their work. VISTA service highlights sustainability by working to build, continue, or improve projects that will exist beyond a single VISTA term. Members will be responsible for working with their organizations to address areas of need such as: Mentoring, Literacy, Opioid Prevention and Response, Mental Health Services, Homeless Services, and Financial Empowerment. The content of each project will be specific to the needs of each organization. The following organizations are currently seeking applicants: Be A Mentor, Inc., Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lowcountry, Bridges of Hope, Charleston Hope, City of Charleston - Business and Neighborhood Services, City of Charleston- Equity, Inclusion, and Racial Conciliation Division, City of Charleston - Mayor's Office for Children, Youth, and Families, Florence Crittenton Programs of South Carolina, Increasing H.O.P.E, Kids on Point, Palmetto Community Action Partnership, Palmetto Project, The Citadel - Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics, The Navigation Center, Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative.
