On Friday, December 4th, Charleston County broke ground on the Social Services Hub. The 175,000 square foot three-story healthcare and office facility is designed to consolidate local and state operated services in a single location. It will be built on Rivers Avenue across from the former Naval Hospital.
“This new hub will be a great opportunity to provide much needed services in a convenient centralized location for our most vulnerable citizens,” said Charleston County Council Chairman Elliott Summey. This project has been in the works for a long time, and once complete, this campus will bring a sense of place and energy the south end of North Charleston needs.”
The hub will include:
- Charleston County’s Department of Alcohol and other Drug Abuse Services (DAODAS)
- South Carolina Department of Health clinics, administrative offices and vital records
- The South Carolina Department of Social Services
- South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services
The Social Services Hub is expected to be complete by winter of 2022. The campus will also include a CARTA hub, North Charleston police substation, and a library.
