Welcome to Helping Florence Flourish

What would happen if our entire community came together to ServeFlo?

Serve FLO 2017  is June 17-24! Our vision is to ServeFlo so that our city will be unified and transformed.

Our strategy is city wide volunteerism with special projects that volunteers can sign up to help with during the week of June 17-24, 2017. Churches, businesses and individuals will unite to help with and lead projects to visibly unify and bless Florence, SC.

Working Toward A Visible Demonstration
Of The Unity of the Body Of Christ To Bless Florence…

Helping Florence Flourish (HFF) is a Christian initiative that seeks to improve Florence in four critical areas: 

1. Education

2. Homelessness

3. Deterioration of the Family

4. Racial Division    

HFF determined that these four areas are in the greatest need after surveying 68 community leaders over an eight month period. All of our respondents expressed a great deal of passion for our community, and cover the gamut of all seven areas of cultural influence: commerce, education, arts and entertainment, media, government, church, and family.  

Through the willing coordination of local non-profit organizations, Florence churches, and volunteers, HFF seeks to make visible, positive changes in those four critical areas. Please follow the links above for more information about these areas.
