Greenville Technical College (GTC) and the Phillis Wheatley Community Center (PWCC) have partnered to open the GTC Returning Citizens Program at the PWCC. The center, housed at PWCC, provides case management activities to remove barriers for citizens who are transitioning from the criminal justice system to productive lives within the community.

The program allows Phillis Wheatley to become a one-stop shop with integrated services providing the tools and resources to help individuals become self-sufficient and achieve upward mobility. The collaborative service delivery model includes partner agencies such as Goodwill, Eckerd Connect, SHARE Head Start, Greenville Area Parkinson's, and Greenville County Parks, Recreation and Tourism.
