How to Become a Member of Staying Connected

Who can become a Member?

A Sun City Resident who has resided in the community for 6 months, except if they have experienced a life-changing event. Applications within the first 6 months of residency will be subject to a separate review process to determine eligibility.


How do I apply to become a Member?

  • Simply complete an application:

  • Click on the link below and either mail it to our office at P.O. 1281, Bluffton, SC 29910 or email it to

  • Call our Resource Hub (M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) at (843) 705-2259 and one of our volunteers will take your information over the phone to start the process.

What happens next?

  • Once we have your application in our system, you will receive a call to schedule an in-home interview in which 2 of our Intake Volunteers will come to your home to interview you and anyone else who lives in your household. They will collect information that allows us to determine what, if any services your household is qualified to receive.

  • You will receive a Member Handbook and be required to sign a Waiver form, which clarifies both parties responsibilities.

  • Once the Interview is completed, a review committee meets to make a final determination and you are notified of their decision.

  • Once qualified, you will be added to our system and allowed to call the Resource Hub to request those services.


If I have questions, who do I call?

Call the Resource Hub at (843) 705-2259 during our normal business hours with any questions. Our volunteers will help you, or forward your question to someone who will get back to you.
