The Deep Well Project: an "Angel Charity"
Helping our Hilton Head Neighbors in Need

A predominantly volunteer-based non-profit, with a minimum of paid staff, Deep Well has been helping islanders since 1973. The organization was founded by Charlotte Heinrichs as a service to the local community that suffered illness as a result of drinking contaminated water from shallow wells.  Over the decades, other needs evolved and so did Deep Well (as it's known on the Island).  We help people in emergency situations by giving them an immediate hand up, so they can continue to help themselves.  It could be a rent payment between jobs, or food for the family when the cupboard runs bare and cash has all but run out.  Or school uniforms for children.  Or repairing a floor or building a much-needed wheel chair ramp.  OVER 90% OF A CONTRIBUTION GOES DIRECTLY TO PROGRAM SERVICES

Our Mission:  help neighbors in need by providing basic assistance in emergency situations.  This assistance is immediate and non-bureaucratic, intended to provide clients with a "hand up, not a hand oUT."
