A day crabbing with Tia

By Aimee Crouch

Crabbing with Tia

This week on a new season of Palmetto Scene, we take a trip to Charleston to go “Crabbing with Tia.” Tia Clark started this Air BnB experience, and it was recently rated #4 in the world. After spending the day with her and her assistant, Art, we know why. We learned different ways to crab and how to throw a cast net.

Watch how we spent our day. Just remember to say “AHHHHH.”

Stay tuned to this week’s Palmetto Scene to learn more about Tia’s journey on Thursday, September 12 at 7:30 p.m.

Foster Care

Did you know that once a child leaves the foster care system, there is a 50% chance they will be unemployed? Or, A 25% chance they will be imprisoned? But despite these negative statistics, there are also many positive outcomes—like Krystel, a former child of foster care, who uses her experience as a way to advocate for children now in the system and to work with organizations that helped her during those difficult years.

Housing the Homeless in Greenville

Greenville

There are currently hundreds of homeless people roaming the streets of Greenville, a city nationally recognized for its amazing growth and beauty. To help with the issue, a group of senior citizens started an initiative called SEARCHlight to help find caring solutions for its homeless population. They partnered with United Housing Connections and several others to build Church Street Place. United Housing Connections has seen success through a similar project and they've learned it's not just a roof over someone's head, but services and security they can't find on the street.

Memorial Plans for Mother Emanuel

By Aimee Crouch

Mother Emanuel

Three years ago, the people of Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church, the city of Charleston, and our entire state, mourned the tragic deaths of nine parishioners.  As the church celebrated the 200th anniversary of its joining the A.M.E. church, a plan was unveiled by Michael Arad, the architect who designed the 9/11 Memorial. Arad hopes the eventual memorial will give visitors to this historic sanctuary a designated place to mourn…and to remember.

The next step in the process is raising an estimated $15 million needed to build the memorial before breaking ground.
