Chapin We Care community outreach center has served Chapin and the surrounding community for over 32 years, serving an average of over 800 individuals on a monthly basis. Through generous support from Chapin area churches as well as local businesses, civic groups, schools and individuals, we are able to help meet the needs of many families in our community through food distribution, assistance with utilities, kerosene and gasoline vouchers, and vouchers to our local thrift store. We have a computer lab for our clients, a reading room for children, and offer nutrition and job training education as well. We also offer special programming including tax clinics, summer camp, Christmas outreach, Thanksgiving meals, Easter baskets, etc. Interest in receiving services, donating or volunteering at the center should be directed to 803-345-3244. We can also be reached through our website chapinwecare.org. The center operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00-12:00, as well as Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 pm.
