Champion Autism Network is a local nonprofit organization that raises awareness of Autism and helps to create more enjoyable experiences for those affected by Autism. This organization was started in 2012 by Becky Large in Surfside Beach, South Carolina to create a more inclusive community in the Grand Strand. Champion Autism Network provides a variety of services for the community including training for businesses, resources for families affected by Autism, and hosting of sensory-friendly events. This organization’s largest program is the CAN Card. A CAN Card is a simple and discreet way for families affected by Autism to notify businesses and restaurants of their situation. The businesses and restaurants that accept the CAN Card have undergone training by Champion Autism Network, and therefore can better serve all members of the community. When a family enters one of these CAN Card businesses, they can simply just show the card to the employee and that employee will provide accommodations to make their experiences more enjoyable.

Broadstep Behavioral Health supports children, adults, and families through programs that provide support for those affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness, and co-occurring disorders. This national organization is individually directed by the state and provides varying services depending on the needs of local communities. Specifically, in South Carolina, this organization provides therapeutic foster care for children. Therapeutic foster care helps match children in the foster system with families that can help them meet their needs both emotionally and physically. The broad step has professional teams with clinical coordinators that approach each child’s situation independently to determine what the goals are for that child and how they can help them reach them through providing therapy and counseling and matching them with a dedicated family. Once a child is placed in a foster home, they continue to provide support to both the child and the family to ensure that they are transitioning into a healthy and stable way of life.

United Outreach Ministries is a local non-profit organization that strives to make a lasting difference in the lives of those in our community who are less fortunate than others. This organization operates a secondhand store whose proceeds go towards buying hygiene products for the homeless population. All products sold in the store are donated by individuals or local businesses. Once the products are donated, volunteers sort through the donations to ensure the store is only selling products that meet the quality standards established by the organization. Everyone who shops at the store is helping to make a positive impact on the lives of homeless people in Myrtle Beach. As previously mentioned, the proceeds from the store are used to purchase hygiene products that many homeless people are unable to afford. United Outreach Ministries believes that these hygiene products will boost the self-esteem of these individuals and help them to better transition back into normal life.
