Wateree Community Action



Wateree Community Action, Inc.

Our Services

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. The largest of five, Sumter County Economic Opportunity Corporation which was formed in 1967 was the lead corporation.
