Founded as the SC Therapeutic Association in 1962 by the Reverend Eli Alston Wilkes, a Methodist minister, the Alston Wilkes Society's original mission was to provide rehabilitative services to adults released from correctional facilities in South Carolina.
Through the years, the Alston Wilkes Society has expanded its focus to include at-risk youth, homeless veterans, other homeless, and the families of these groups of people.
Rebuilding lives for a safer community.
To provide offenders, former offenders, the homeless, at-risk youth, veterans, and their families the tools they need to become productive citizens.
Our primary responsibility is to those we serve. The success of the Alston Wilkes Society is measured by how we meet our responsibilities to clients, volunteers, investors, other agencies, and each other. We operate in the spirit of doing unto others as we would have them do unto us.
