Programs.  CRC INC. provides programs that are tailored to address the needs of our surrounding community in the areas of community wellness, education, after-school support, and summer activities focused on education, life-skills, and recreation.  The following narratives are provided for the programs offered by CRC INC:

Save The Children Program.  The Darlington County Cultural Realism Complex, Inc. is totally committed to the  dreams of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by sponsoring county-wide activities emphasizing our community's need to remember the past as we proceed toward the future with anticipation, but also hope. "Committed to the Dream  - Save the Children" was the title of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Celebration held on January 17, 2005.  

  The many ills facing our children in today's society can no longer be addressed simply by a single entity but wholly by the community.  The Darlington County "Committed to the Dream - Save The Children" Program was created for addressing short-comings within our community's educational, theological, business, and judicial institutions as well as a venue to encourage mentoring and entrepreneurship.  The program's mantra "it takes a community to raise a child" incorporates a partnership with the whole community to ensure this program is a viable success.

  At a time when our children are lacking positive role models and effective leadership, “Committed To The Dream – Save The Children” was chaired on April 23, 2005 to formulate an action plan to address the many negative influences within our community.  “Committed To The Dream – Save The Children" consist of members of our educational, theological, businesses, and judicial institutions as well as parents, teachers, mentors, and youth.

  The community-concept seeks to address the individual, the family, the church, the school, and business communities as a single entity interdependent on one another.  This concept was echoed by the individual for whom this holiday we celebrate with the following quote, "We  must live together as brothers or perish as fools", unquote.  

  The beginning date for the “Committed To The Dream – Save The Children” Project was February 26, 2005 with no end in sight.  Each level of completion will call for another to begin.
