SAFE’s goals, which they share with the South Carolina Association for Community Development Corporations, Inc. is "to improve the quality of life and expand the economic base and revitalize South Carolina’s distressed urban and rural communities".


The Southern Association for Financial Empowerment was established by the South Carolina Association of Community Development Corporations (SCACDC) in response to the need for a statewide provider of flexible innovative capital for CDCs.
