Our Partners

Because this is a grassroots initiative, the project has grown through innovative partnerships with businesses, nonprofits and individuals. From the neighbors who landscape the property, to the contractors that have arrived from far away to lend their skills, to the businesses that have donated goods and services—this project has grown without any public funding or grants. We are honored by the generosity and hard work of these heroes, a few of whom you can see here:

The Center is proud to count numerous businesses and nonprofit agencies as founding partners in the re-building and development of the project.  Without such outstanding leaders, this grassroots effort could not have been completed.  In the same way, the GHWMHEC welcomes community partners, whether educational, historical, health, or workforce development. The center can be a delivery point for your services to the people of  Bladen and Columbus counties.
