Updates for SHARE in Anderson
SHARE (Sunbelt Human Advancement Resources) is a great organization that’s been serving the Upstate for many years. Our original versions of the Community Resource Guide listed their services in several categories, but we have recently learned that all of these are not offered in the Anderson area. All that to say, don’t read this as bad, it’s just more accurate. SHARE has been removed from the following categories: Clothing, Food Pantries, For Youth, Medical Assistance, and Transportation. They are still listed under Employment Assistance, Financial Assistance, and Housing.
