Our Residential Program provides comprehensive services for pregnant girls and young women ages 10 to 21 from the entire state of South Carolina. These clients struggle with a myriad of challenges and have a wide variety of risk factors, in addition to being pregnant. 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, as well as acquire a sense of autonomy and accomplishment, so that they may become self-sufficient, successful adults.
FAMILY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Our Family Development Program provides comprehensive home-based support services to at-risk, low-income single parents with children ages five 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 individual counseling, continuing education, and career growth. A primary focus of our Family Development Program is to help young children enter school “ready to learn” by strengthening the mother’s ability to meet the child’s physical, social, emotional, and cognitive developmental needs in a stable environment. Homeless families may apply for our transitional housing project, which provides subsidized rent so that each disadvantaged young mother may complete her education and pursue vocational training, thus giving her the opportunity to achieve independence and greater financial security for her family.
