To find out how to volunteer with the PASOs program, read the PASOs Volunteer Orientation Guide.

PASOs in Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley Counties began in 2010 through a partnership with the College of Nursing of the Medical University of South Carolina. The program is part of the Hispanic Health Initiative.

The PASOs Family and Community Health Programs offer the following services:

  • Education for individuals and families on family health and prevention topics  Click here for information on PASOs educational topics.

  • Support and solution-finding for individuals and families
  • Partnerships with organizations to increase access to health care and other resources
