Elevating health, education, and economic standards of low-income residents in our services delivery area is our primary focus. We serve as a network for the state’s not-for-profit and related governmental units to address the daily challenges of the disadvantaged in South Carolina in the most effective manner possible. Recipients must prove their economic sustainability. BJEOC’s assistance is meant to help individuals or families reach a point where they can assist themselves without public funding.
Beaufort-Jasper Head Start is one of several programs sponsored by Beaufort-Jasper EOC. Head Start is a federally funded program that promotes school readiness of children ages birth to five from low-income families by supporting their development in a comprehensive way to meet their educational developmental, emotional, social, health, mental health and nutritional needs.
