Community Involvement

We support community and volunteer involvement in our neighborhoods.

The Preferred Group believes in getting involved in the community and also supporting volunteer work by our employees. Corporately, there are 3 main charitable organizations in South Carolina that we support: Carolina Children’s Home, The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (we support the local chapter but this is a national organization), and Sistercare, Inc.

Carolina Children’s Home
The Carolina Children’s Home is an accredited treatment facility offering a diversity of programs to meet the needs of children and families. The majority of the children who are in one of the residential programs have been victims of abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

The Home can take care of a maximum of 114 children in the residential program, most of which have been legally removed from their families and are in the custody of the State of South Carolina.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Founded more than 46 years ago, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an athletic ministry, its primary constituency being athletes and coaches from junior high school through professional levels. FCA aids athletes and coaches in maintaining or restoring relationships and directing athletes and coaches toward the family and church.

The purpose of the FCA is to “Present to athletes and coaches, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.”

Sistercare, Inc.

Services provided include a 24-hour, 7 day a week crisis line; 2 emergency shelters; counseling for both adult women and children, both individual and community support group based; legal advocacy; medical crisis intervention; community education and awareness; and follow-up services for women leaving the shelters.
