  • OUR FIRST REDEMPTION
    After we paid $941.54 to redeem her family's property on May 15, 2015, Charima Allen was so happy that she burst into tears right outside the Treasurer's Office. Her reaction was captured on video by a photographer from The Island Packet/Beaufort Gazette.
  • SPECIAL 2017 PAN-AFRICAN FAMILY OUTREACH PROJECT--THE PLANTERSVILLE COMMUNITY OF GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC
    June 30th Cora Grice received the smallest tax payment--$593.96--which prevented her modest mobile home from being sold for delinquent taxes.
  • OUR FIRST HORRY COUNTY REDEMPTION
    OUR FIRST HORRY COUNTY REDEMPTION The $4,112.97 we spent to redeem Brandy Beaty's childhood home near Myrtle Beach in Horry County, SC--was the largest tax payment we've ever made for a Gullah family outside of Beaufort County. The delinquent tax payment was made on Nov. 21, 2017. Her redemption was covered by The Georgetown Times--and was one of its most read stories over this year's Thanksgiving Weekend.
  • OUR OLDEST AND FIRST COLLETON COUNTY CLIENT
    OUR OLDEST AND FIRST COLLETON COUNTY CLIENT. Colleton County widow Elizabeth Lisbon, then 75 years-old, is the oldest person that we've assisted to date.
