What is Éleos?
Based in the Nicholtown community of Greenville, SC, Éleos is a nonprofit ministry that takes its name from the Greek word for mercy – a costly love given for the sole purpose of building up someone else.
What do we do?
We exist to serve our neighbors, and equip them in their God-given potential, for the good of our community.
How do we approach that?
We serve individuals in a holistic way, and whole communities in a sustainable way.Tell me more!
Our programs are developed with holistic personal development and sustainable community development in mind. We want to serve people and equip them to participate with us in the development of their community.
Here’s how we approach that.
PROGRAM: OPEN GYM
Relationships are the bedrock of everything that we do. You can’t invest in someone you don’t know, and you won’t receive the investment of someone you don’t trust. Holistic ministry starts and ends with relationships of mutual respect.
INVESTING THROUGH MENTORSHIP
PROGRAM: WEEKLY MENTORING
Most of us can look at where we are today and identify the value of those who invested in our lives along the way. There may be nothing more valuable to offer a young person than your time, consistently invested over the long haul.
PROGRAM: THE LEAD PROJECT
A necessary part of serving people is equipping them to serve their community. The people with greatest influence in a neighborhood are the people who grew up there, which is why leadership deveopment is at the heart of everything we do!
PROGRAM: AFTER SCHOOL TUTORING
Graduating from High School dramatically increases the opportunties available to a person. While we are serving the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of young people, we don’t want to overlook their social needs – which for a student is primarily about their education.
