Find Assistance With SNAP and Medicaid Benefits

SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)No one should wonder where their next meal is coming from, or worry that they and their children can’t afford to see a doctor. At the Center for Community Services, we help residents of Southern Greenville County and nearby areas apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (or SNAP, once called food stamps) and Medicaid.

What is SNAP?

SNAP or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (previously Food Stamps) provides nutrition assistance by allowing local individuals and families who quality for the program to buy groceries within their local communities, helping keep healthy food on the table.

What is Medicaid?

Medicaid provides health care coverage to individuals and families, including children, pregnant women, parents of eligible children, people with disabilities, and elderly individuals.
