Community Involvement

CHSA Law is proud to work with the following non-profits in the lowcountry.

Dorchester Habitat was founded in 1993, and since then has completed 74 homes in Dorchester County. It takes roughly 2,000 volunteer hours and nearly $100,000 to complete each home. This non-profit keeps their construction costs at a minimum by utilizing mostly volunteer labor. The only services that cannot be performed by volunteers are electrical, HVAC, and plumbing.

Teachers’ Supply Closet (TSC) is a nonprofit organization that provides free school supplies to teachers in the Tri-County area who work at schools where 69% or more of the students are on the free or reduced meals program.

TSC opened its doors in February 2009 as the only “free” school supply store in South Carolina. Its first location was inside the Ashley Landing Shopping Plaza in Charleston, South Carolina. The store originally served six elementary schools in the Charleston County School District. TSC currently reaches across Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties, serving 58 schools!
