Agency Closing – March 18, 2020

To our valued customers and friends,

Thank you for your continued loyalty and support to Beaufort Jasper EOC’s communities, programs, services, activities and partners.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by COVID-19 in our communities, State and around the world. The health and safety of our clients, employees, guests and communities has always been and will continue to be our top priority. We are closely following the (CDC) Center for Disease Control’s guidelines, (CAPLAW) Community Action Program Legal Services advisories and recommendations on steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus.

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) begins to have an increased impact in our communities, Beaufort Jasper EOC’s Board of Directors, Executive Director and Staff felt it was important to share with you the steps we are taking in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Currently. Effective March 18, 2020 our lobby will be closed to the public until further notice. We are staying in contact with Vendors (e.g. Dominion Energy, Palmetto Electric, BJ Water & Sewer Authority, etc.) and local authorities to try to determine if you may have extra time to deal with emergencies (i.e., evictions or disconnects etc.).  Located below are some links to vendor websites containing additional information.

In the Future:  You may be able to down load an application for emergency assistance and attach the required documents (legible) so that we may determine eligibility.  Once eligibility is determined, the agency would scan and email documents to you for your signature.

What’s expected of you?  Continue to keep you and your family safe, self-quarantine if necessary, pay on your accounts as you would do normally and continue to follow plans issued by the government, local leaders and specialist in the field of disasters.  We are in a State of Emergency.

Beaufort Jasper EOC, Inc. will continue to be here for you, just like we always have.

Thank you for your trust and loyalty,
Beaufort Jasper EOC
