During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Our mission is to provide young, at-risk pregnant and parenting girls by providing them with comprehensive services to help them become self-sufficient and responsible mothers. We value the right of every pregnant young woman to obtain the education, skills, and support needed to have a healthy start in life - for both herself and her child.
Our Residential Program offers comprehensive help for pregnant teens and young women, ages 10 to 21, from the entire state of South Carolina. Services include residential care, academic education, group and individual counseling, pre-natal care and life skills instruction. Our overriding goal is to help each young mother take ownership of her pregnancy and her life, so that she will make informed, beneficial choices for herself, her baby, and the community as a whole. With our help, these girls and young women deliver healthy babies, complete their education, and heal through counseling. They also acquire a sense of autonomy and accomplishment, so that they may become self-sufficient, successful adults.
Our Family Development Program provides comprehensive, home-based support services to at-risk, low-income single parents with children, ages 5 and under, who live in the Tri-County area of Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester. We promote positive family dynamics and self-sufficiency by assisting the mother with stable housing, individual counseling, academic education, parenting education and career growth.
