Alston Wilkes Society

Alston Wilkes Society: Founded as the SC Therapeutic Association in 1962 by the Reverend Eli Alston Wilkes, 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 individuals, and the families of these groups of people.  AWS is a statewide nonprofit and fully accredited agency, working every day to fulfill our mission statement – Rebuilding Lives for a Safer Community.
