“I am honored and blessed to be part of Southern Crescent Resource Ministries. This organization has grown and helped so many people. I pray that God will continue to bless us, so that we may be a blessing to others. With God’s will and guidance, we will continue to grow. I am grateful to fellow board members, employees, and all of our volunteers. SCRM would not be where it is today without the hard work and cooperation of those mentioned.
