Mission Statement

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is committed to supporting, promoting, and empowering middle to low income families in South Carolina and the United States. ACORN's purpose of is to provide inspiration and useful information for low- to moderate-income adults and children through education and resource sharing.

Description

South Carolina ACORN is an affliate of the nation's largest commuity oranization of low and moderate-income communities. This organization is nationwide and have been in existence since 1970.

Since it's existence in 2006 in Columbia, South Carolina, ACORN is the group that has fought to clean up the neighborhoods, to help people keep their homes from predatory lenders and to put more wealth back into the hands of low and moderate-income community residents.. The South Carolina ACORN Site Coordinator is working very hard to start up SC ACORN's free income tax and benefits access center site. Plans for the site to open will be Tuesday, January 15, 2008 following their grand opening block party event on Saturday, January 12, 2008. The South Carolina ACORN Office is also working on a continuous back to school campaign. Our objective is to work to make a strong bond between the community and the school system. When the community and the schools work together in encouraging students to go back to school or stay in school, there is a high probability that these students will be successful adults and will do better in life in terms of being able to make a living, to be an active participant in the community and to be able to take care of their families. ACORN's back to school campaign will endorse the message; staying in school will help our children have a brighter and stable future.
