South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley started a community outreach foundation called The Original Six Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to assist South Carolina Counties with high unemployment rates.
The Original Six Foundation has organized a major statewide initiative that will help provide the tools and resources needed for distressed South Carolina communities to grow economically.
On June 2, 2012 The Foundation and its partners organized an event in Marion County to help uplift the community up with a health and job fair, GED programs, literacy programs, and other important resources.
JusticeWorks BehavioralCare was invited to represent the beneficial impact of helping families improve their well-being and care of their children.
Governor Haley was in attendance and spent time with JusticeWorks’ Executive Director Richard Christian and his wife Paula (on her birthday!). More than 600 local citizens attended the all-day event.
The Governor was most gracious in acknowledging the importance of our helping families becoming healthier and more self-reliant. We are proud to work with her on behalf of South Carolina citizens grappling with profound behavioral health, and related, concerns.
