The Coastal Samaritan Counseling Center’s Ethics in Business Awards program is beginning its second year as a signature fundraising event. By recognizing Grand Strand companies, organizations and individuals who give leadership in ethical business practice, the Center hopes to support ethical workplaces in the community while also raising funds for the Center’s Good Samaritan Client Assistance Fund, which provides financially-assisted counseling services to the community.

The Samaritan Counseling Center helps people in Horry and Georgetown counties find wholeness and healing through professional psychological counseling and education which integrate medical and spiritual resources. The Center is staffed by five therapists housed in several office locations around the Grand Strand. As an affiliate of The Samaritan Institute since 1996, the Center is accredited using nationally benchmarked behavioral health standards. Samaritan Centers utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to counseling including a belief in the close relationship of body, mind, spirit, and community in order to achieve health and wholeness and are 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.
