Greer Relief and Resources Agency exists to eliminate poverty and to help neighbors overcome barriers for success.
Prevention is the core mission of Greer Relief. In 1936, in the depth of the Great Depression, Greer citizens founded Greer Relief to help prevent their neighbors from starving and freezing.

We believe that our community’s health is reflected by its residents’ well being. Similar to the circumstances surrounding the Great Depression, circumstances contributing to need are complex. Families may need relief due to generational cycles of poverty and addiction. Conversely, families may encounter a completely unexpected crisis, such as job loss, injury, a death, or other disaster.
