Special Help for Special Needs

Spectrum today announced Laurens County Disabilities and Special Needs Board (LCDSNB) has received a $50,000 donation through Spectrum Community Center Assist, the company’s five-year, $30 million philanthropic initiative to revitalize local community centers and invest in job training programs in rural and urban underserved communities where Spectrum operates.

Spectrum kicked-off the partnership at LCDSNB’s Cypress Campus in Clinton with a revitalization event, where employees and community volunteers made improvements to the facility and dedicated the new Spectrum Training & Technology Center.


“The Laurens County Disabilities and Special Needs Board is excited to partner with Charter Communications to enhance the employment services we offer for people living in Laurens County with intellectual disabilities,” said Jason Tavenner, Executive Director of LCDSNB. “Through our partnership, we hope to make the employment goals for our participants a reality and in doing so make their tomorrow that much better.”

Spectrum launched Spectrum Community Center Assist in September 2021 to benefit local organizations providing critical community services and job training skills in underserved cities and towns across the company’s 41-state footprint. By 2025, Spectrum will invest $25 million plus $5 million of in-kind contributions to improve 100 community centers serving an estimated 50,000 local residents. More information about Spectrum Community Assist is available here.
