All About Us

What We Do… The Point is a women’s non-profit organization dedicated to supporting local groups in the low country that focus on the needs of less fortunate women and children, those suffering the anguish of ill health, and those who are striving to repair the structure of their family. The Point offers financial support to the community by coordinating fundraising events and providing service by volunteering their time and talents. From its members, The Point requires participation, dedication, and desire, and in return provides fellowship, fun, and flexibility while responding to the needs of organizations and individuals in crisis.


Why We Do It… To promote and empower women in all phases of life, including education and general living. To assist women in the endeavor to be free from all forms of oppression. To encourage other women to help make a difference in their community.
