Life Resources began in 2010 with the mission to provide faith based counseling for individuals, couples, and families, psychoeducational evaluations, tutoring and coaching for the greater Charleston community. From the outset, it was apparent that many people could not afford the standard rates for these services, even those with moderate income. No insurance panels cover some services, such as marriage counseling or psychoeducational testing.
As people benefitted from our services, we began to be approached by grateful clients who wished to come alongside others to help them receive services. Churches began to provide scholarship assistance for people to receive counseling through Life Resources. We began to realize that if we could offer the opportunity for our supporters to make charitable donations to help provide these services to those who could not otherwise afford them, the range and breadth of services we could provide to our community could be greatly expanded.
At the same time, other therapists began to approach us for mentoring in their professional development. There are few vehicles to provide this training and mentoring, and it inspired us to consider that scholarship help could also be offered for therapists to have greater access to professional development, either by offsetting costs to send them to other places for courses or by raising funds to bring high calibre training to Charleston. We also realized that bringing speakers/ trainers to Charleston could not only benefit professionals, but the community at large, as the topics for training are also relevant to the general population.
As a result, Seeds of Life, Inc. was formed as a non-profit vehicle to provide seed money and scholarship funds to fulfill the mission of Life Resources to bring personal and relational healing, equipping for life success, and professional training to the greater Charleston Community and beyond. By God’s grace, we received our 501c3 designation in November of 2014, just 11 weeks after our application was received by the IRS.
Our core values are the heart of Life Resources and serve as the guiding principles by which we live, both personally and professionally.
LOVE "Love your neightbor as yourself" is the basis for truly compassionate care.
INTEGRITY We live what we offer. We live it out personally and corporately with each other and with our clients.
FAITH We recognize that God is the Healer and we are simply His vessels.
EXCELLENCE We strive to be the very best in our professional roles, personal lives, and in the way we do business.
"Plant your roots in Christ and let Him be the foundation of your life." ~ Colossians 2:7
