Cooperative Churches: Church cooperation is the cornerstone upon which we have founded NSSC.  We believe that churches can work together to make a difference—and be enriched in the process.   Next Step Program Volunteers come from a number of Cooperative Churches in a community, but generally only one of them serves as the Host Cooperative Church.  That is where the Affiliate operates the Next Step Program.

Employment and Social Services: Non-profits, ministries, and government organizations are the resource agencies to which Next Step Samaritan Mentors and Lazarus Mentors send Next Step Program Participants to receive services.  For example, (a) employment services may include employment workshops, resume preparation, learning computer skills, conducting a job search, completing job applications on-line, preparing for job interviews; and (b) social services may include obtaining legal advice, entering addiction treatment programs, applying for benefits, receiving medical care, managing checking and debit/credit accounts, obtaining housing.

 

Next Steps of South Carolina is indebted to Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington (www.samaritanministry.com), Lazarus Ministry of Christ Episcopal Church, Alexandria, VA (www.historicchristchurch.org), and The Cooperative Ministry, Columbia, SC (www.coopmin.org) for allowing us to pattern our Next Step Program after their successful ministries.
