22 Feb The Charleston Profile: Connecting the Dots
Oysters and affordable housing—not exactly subjects that naturally go together, but the two have more in common than you might think. To wit: both are hot topics, in high demand locally, and incredibly hard to crack, especially the increasingly dire need for affordable housing in the Charleston region. One other fortunate common denominator is that both have the Doran family behind them. That’s why you may see delivery trucks for St. Jude Farms, an ACE Basin-based sustainable oyster farming, seafood, and aquaculture operation that the Dorans launched in 2012, making pit stops at GrandOaks Apartments, a low-income housing complex for seniors in West Ashley that’s one of several local developments by the Dorans’ Humanities Foundation.
