Looking Back: Key Accomplishments in 2022
You were part of another unforgettable year.
Whether you volunteered, donated, prayed, or advocated for our mission, thank you for making 2022 impactful. The year wasn’t without its challenges. With your help, we’ve built a strong foundation to weather anything that comes our way.
While our waiting list continues to hover around 1,000 applicants, we started the year having repaired more than 1,250 homes. We’re now eclipsing 1,380 homes repaired in our 16-year history. The list of homeowners in safer homes exceeds those who are waiting for assistance. We are tipping the scales.
While there is still work to be done, there is comfort in knowing you’re on our side.
Here are some other key accomplishments made in 2022:
- 109 families like the Lattimore Family received home repairs.
- Staff, volunteers, and contractors performed 582 repair projects – the most ever completed in a year.
- We successfully onboarded our first full-time CEO, Jake Beaty. Get to know him here.
- Staff pursued relevant training and certifications including 3 staff becoming Certified Aging in Place Specialists.
- We virtually recognized volunteers across social media for National Volunteer Appreciation Week. Read the blog.
- We expanded donor services to accept gifts of stock, established the Safe at Home Fund, and broadened giving options for Donor Advised Fund holders.
- We were voted the Best Nonprofit in South Carolina by the SC Biz Reader Rankings contest.
These accomplishments came in the midst of challenges including access to subcontractors, higher material prices, and homes needing more repairs than ever before. While we can’t change the nature of all challenges faced, we can continue to partner with organizations and supporters who are willing to move forward with us.
