Hopeful Horizons is a children’s advocacy, domestic violence and rape crisis center that works to create safer communities by changing the culture of violence and offering a path to healing. The organization provides safety, hope and healing to survivors through evidence-based practices, outreach, prevention and education. Hopeful Horizons serves a five-county area in the Low County of South Carolina.
Erin has spent the last two decades working in non-profit management, serving in various leadership and communications roles with organizations throughout South Carolina.
She joined Hopeful Horizons in November 2018 after serving as Chief Executive Officer of the Palmetto Association for Children and Families (PAFCAF) in Columbia. Prior to that she was executive director of Palmetto Place Shelter for children and teens. At Palmetto Place, Erin worked to create a safe and caring environment for children and teens who faced abuse, abandonment, neglect and homelessness.
When Erin arrived, Palmetto Place was home to about a dozen children, who were elementary school age or younger. Erin and her team developed a strategic plan to build a new home to house more children and youth. By 2017, Palmetto Place built a new house in addition to a second home just for high school and college students who were experiencing homelessness.
