Sharing about SHARE

At COR3, we aim to serve our communities beyond the buildings we design. It is a core value and one we hold closely. Recently, we created a program that allows employees to select a nonprofit each quarter for our philanthropic efforts. Our own Amber Choice selected SHARE for the first quarter of 2024, a nonprofit Community Action Agency (CAA) that serves low and moderate-income families in the upstate of South Carolina. To put it simply, SHARE helps people and communities exit poverty and achieve economic stability.

Amber chose SHARE because, in her own words, “This program helped me get where I need to be in life…My son was in the Head Start program and I used many resources they offer as well. [SHARE] was a major change to my own life and I believe giving back to someone that helped me become successful.” 

As part of our support, we had the honor to participate as a sponsor for SHARE’s annual gala on February 29.

SHARE has a long history as a Community Action Agency (CAA). CAA’s are nonprofit organizations operating across the nation to reduce poverty and support these families toward self-sufficiency. Founded in 1964 as part of the “War on Poverty,” these agencies are now 1,000 strong and provide resources to communities all over the country.

Locally, SHARE has consistently helped thousands of families annually in its primary service areas of Greenville, Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties. Signature programs include Operation Warmth, the LADDER Program (job training improvement and placement), Housing Repair, Community Services Block Grant (providing emergency interventions to prevent homelessness), Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, Youth Leadership, Homeless Services, and Circles (a national organization building community). 

We are so thankful for what SHARE has done for decades in our community and for the chance to support their crucial initiatives. Thank you, Amber, for recommending! We look forward to sharing what we will support in the next quarter.
