Working Hard for the Working Poor.

This moment, one in two families in the Midlands of South Carolina falls near or below the poverty line. The Cooperative Ministry is here to provide emergency assistance to those in crisis, providing direct assistance, counseling, guidance and prayer. With the support of generous congregations, individuals and companies in our community, we desire to honor God by reflecting divine compassion for those less fortunate — working hard to lift the Midlands' working poor out of crisis and poverty.
