South Carolina Habitat for Humanity (SCAHA) State Support Organization (SSO) was officially chartered in September 2012 to support the 31 Habitat affiliates within the state of South Carolina who actively work to eliminate poverty housing and improve communities.
Though only officially incorporated in September of 2012, SCAHA had early beginnings in South Carolina, meeting as an informal group of Habitat Executive Directors. They began meeting in 2004 and continued this informal organization until incorporating in 2012. The early group elected officers and conducted quarterly meetings to share ideas and visions. Many of the "founding fathers" of SCAHA still hold positions in their respective affiliates as well as serve on the SCAHA Board.
