Together, we can make Greenwood County
an even better place to live.
Greenwood Counts will provide easy to understand health, environmental and other quality of life indicators for Greenwood County. This innovative platform would link its visitors to promising practices and resources that encourage and promote informed community action. The site will address the issues of outdated data and data accessibility, while serving as a road map for collaborative community improvement by highlighting where we have been, our current status and directing us on where we need to go.
