Saluda, Newberry and Edgefield Counties

Local PASOs Program

The PASOs Program  in Saluda, Newberry and Edgefield Counties began in 2009 through a partnership with South Carolina Hispanic Outreach and their funding partner, the South Carolina Chapter of the March of Dimes. Now the program is housed at  the Arnold School of Public Health at USC.
