Emmanuel's Hammer, formerly called MSN, is a nonprofit organization providing home rehabilitation services for homeowners in need throughout the Upstate, South Carolina.
K.C. Carter, Executive Director, established the organization to provide disaster relief to people living in the Bahamas shortly after hurricanes Frances and Jeanne struck in the fall of 2004. The organization responded immediately by organizing and then leading short-term mission teams to the Bahamas where the organization worked with local missionaries to source, procure, and deliver building supplies needed for rebuilding efforts. By 2008, the organization expanded its focus to include rebuilding the homes and lives of homeowners living in sub-standard conditions.
The non-denominational, faith-based organization now focuses on sharing the love of Christ by providing urgently needed repairs to the homes of qualified homeowners in need. These homeowners have exhausted all other repair options and, for one reason or another, their requests for help have been denied. In most cases, Emmanuel’s Hammer is their last and only option. The vision of Emmanuel’s Hammer is to help end sub-standard housing in the Upstate of South Carolina.
