Our History

Three Trees Center for Change, LLC was founded in 2007 with the intention of providing the community with educational and treatment responses for individuals engaged with the legal system. Our mission from the start has been to increase community safety and decrease offender recidivism through evidence based programs. We have grown a lot over the years and in addition to our local classroom based services also offer programs through our e-courses and homestudies. We were also the recipients of the “Linda J. Allen Community Service Award for significant contributions that have brought honor and credit to the field of criminal justice in South Carolina.” We hope this website has all the information that you need, but if not feel free to give us a call at (803) 207-0558. Below you can get to know the people who run Three Trees Center For Change.
