The services listed above that we provide in the South Carolina/Georgia region would be so expensive on an individual basis that few could afford them. That is why they do not exist as commercial enterprise. Our volunteers and associate companies and organizations provide these services free of charge. Our reward is the satisfaction that we receive in helping those less fortunate and the community. No members, directors, or officers of Enabletech are paid a salary or benefit materially in any way from our work. We are supported by public and private donations and grants and in kind materials and support from our associates and volunteers.
