Wateree Community Actions, Inc. was officially formed in July 1970 when the community actions agencies of Sumter County and Kershaw County merged. Subsequently the newly formed agency grew with the merging of three other existing community actions agencies: Lee County (Williamsburg-Lee), Clarendon County (Clarendon County Commission) and Richland County (Midlands Human Resource Commission). The merging process spanned from July 1970 until April 1988.
Wateree Community Actions, Inc., is committed to enhancing the social and economic self-sufficiency of low income people and their environment of Clarendon, Kershaw, Lee, Richland and Sumter Counties, through coordinating and partnering relationships and by conducting a range of custom designed services and activities geared toward reducing poverty problems and making the community a better place for all to live.
