Last year, SCBMA engaged a third-party firm to complete a Market Feasibility and Financial Study which indicated more than a 20% growth projected in individuals who are 75 years or older in the greater Columbia area. With this increasing number of retired individuals, the ministry is exploring the possibility of expanding its services into the Midlands with a new CCRC Community. As with our other two retirement communities, a new community will be privately funded by its residents. However, in order to break ground for the new community, SCBMA will need the help of the Midlands community. SCBMA has formed an Expansion Advisory Committee with responsibility to help raise awareness and funding for the possible new community.
“Our Board of Trustees recognize the senior needs that will grow in the years to come in the state and we hope to meet that need by serving the Midlands” said Tom Turner, CEO of SCBMA. For opportunities to help SCBMA expand into the Midlands, please contact Annie Eveleigh, SCBMA’s Director of Advancement, at 803-227-6058.
