Our Founders

Cam and Joy Hill have lived in Nicholtown for over 7 years. They are yankees, but we promise we won’t hold that against them. They founded Éleos in April, 2016 in an attempt to love their neighbors and equip them in their God-given potential. The programs of Éleos have expanded, but the mission remains the same. Cam now serves as the Executive Director of Lead Collective, and Joy continues to humble our students on the basketball court, and make sure they eat their vegetables at Lead Project (which the Hills continue to host in their home). 

Program Director

Grace Bridger was born and raised in Greenville, SC! She attended Wade Hampton High School and North Greenville University. She was introduced to the non-profit world in 2017 through Mill Village Farms & became our Program Director in the fall of 2019!

Anyone who knows Grace knows she loves to throw a party & one of her favorite Éleos memories definitely goes to show it: “Our first annual Christmas party in 2019 was a BLAST – over 40 students, volunteers and family members came!” When Grace isn’t hanging out with our students, she loves spending as much time outdoors as possible, whether it is on a backpacking trip or a picnic in the park.

Program Coordinator

Erskine otherwise known as Ej, is from Greenville – born and raised! His favorite hobby is to play basketball. In fact, he heard about Eleos from Cam when He was just a peewee (His words, not ours) trying to find something fun to do on a Tuesday. EJ said, he wanted to work for Eleos because he want to make a change for the community that he came from! He can see that impact most clearly through the students he works with. He says, his favorite thing about working at Eleos is seeing smiles on the kids faces.”
