Harmony Nears Fundraising Milestone, Secures $22,500 Matching Funds for Midlands Gives

Updated: May 3, 2021

Despite the COVID pandemic, Harmony Christian Community is pleased to announce it has raised $97,500 toward its first fundraising milestone of $100,000, and the board has secured

$22,500 in matching gifts for the 2021 Midlands Gives effort. The money will be used to purchase the land needed for the project to become a reality.

Right now, there are 2,490 individuals in South Carolina with intellectual disabilities who are being cared for by a parent 65 or older. Simply put, there are not enough places for those adults with special needs to be housed once their parents pass away.

“As a solution, we will build a community where parents would live in their own home and, when needed, take advantage of a full step-down retirement facility and a full nursing care facility,” said WC Hoecke, who cofounded the effort with his wife Catherine . “Our children would live in their own ‘younger home’ on campus with younger staff, enjoying independence with any needed supports.”

The Christ-centered community will allow differently abled individuals and their families to live meaningfully in an inter-generational neighborhood, with a farm, micro-businesses.

Harmony’s Board of Directors includes Katherine Andes, Catherine Boggs Hoecke, WC Hoecke, Ricky James, Guy Wood and Alex Zelling.

“Together, along with our volunteers and donors, we will create a self-sustaining community where all are valued and all have a future,” WC Hoecke said.

Support Harmony during Midlands Gives and your gift will be matched 100 percent, up to $22,500. Visit Questions? Call (803) 556-3051.
