The main goal of Kershaw County First Steps is to strengthen families and ensure a successful starting point for children entering schools in the community. With the organization’s opening of two new resource rooms in September, the group’s staff hopes it can work even more effectively toward that goal. The rooms were organized at Baron DeKalb Elementary School and Wateree Community Actions.
