“Time and money spent in helping people do more for themselves is far better than mere giving.”
– Henry Ford (1863-1947)
At Clover Area Assistance Center, our services and programs are designed to address basic urgent needs. Through food, financial assistance, health services, and education, our goal is to not only alleviate immediate need, but also to help individuals and families bridge the gap between dependence and self-sufficiency.
Transportation is a major issue for many residents of our predominantly rural community. Most service organizations and government offices are located in Rock Hill or other outlying areas. This makes getting help from these organizations difficult for those who lack or have limited access to transportation. Our solution is to bring those services to Clover Area Assistance Center.
On a regular basis, a representative from Carolina Community Actions comes to CAAC offering help through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Anyone from the community who meets income eligibility guidelines is welcome to schedule an appointment to meet with this representative. A list of materials that an individual needs to bring with them is available at CAAC.
Clover Area Assistance Center also has trained Benefit Bank counselors available on-site to help individuals apply for services such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, and TANF. A simple call to set an appointment is all it takes!
