About The Simple Room

For the last 30 years our mission has been to do everything we can to care for the youth of our community. When asked about the kids we serve, we would tell you that we care about kids who have wonderful potential – they are so full of youth and energy and talent and dreams. We want to empower them by providing them with resources, opportunities, and support to help them succeed. We want to see our kids grow and develop and, ultimately, be able to give back and positively engage their community. For this reason, our organization’s mission statement focuses on development and community: “The Simple Room transforms youth by facilitating Christ-centered programming for spiritual, physical, mental, and social development in efforts to empower youth to positively engage their community."

During the school year we regularly serve about 90 kids per month by facilitating 13 programs with support from a team of nearly 40 volunteers a week. All our programs are offered free of cost to participants and provide opportunities for youth to develop their whole person. Our programming is based on our ability to connect community resources with our kids interests and needs. All our programs have benefited from, and would not be possible, without our network of quality relationships with local social work and law enforcement agencies, area public schools, churches and community organizations, and Greenville College.
