Community Collaborations

KARE played an integral part in the Town of Kershaw becoming a Heart and Soul Community. The original grant, awarded in 2017, funded a two year process of interviewing residents within the 29067 zip code to learn what matters most. The result was this Community Collaborative Action plan (click here to view) which will guide the future of the Kershaw community.
