Founded on the belief that South Carolina is stronger when all residents are healthy and thriving, PASOs (Perinatal Awareness for Successful Outcomes) is a statewide initiative that was founded initially to support the Latino community with maternal and child health needs. After demonstrating success and positive outcomes, PASOs added more comprehensive programs and support services and expanded into additional communities across the state. The decision to expand to Spartanburg was intentional and well-researched. In fact, conversations about bringing PASOs to Spartanburg began in 2009 and resulted in a community readiness assessment being conducted in 2013. While the assessment documented a clear need for the program, the challenge was finding a nonprofit home or fiscal sponsor. After several promising leads fell through, Upstate Family Resource Center agreed to a partnership with PASOs. With funding from the Mary Black Foundation, PASOs Spartanburg opened its doors in 2017, becoming the only countywide organization to serve the Latino community.
