Greenwood Campus

stahnAbused, abandoned, neglected children, and children going through difficult situations, need love, security and a safe environment. Connie Maxwell Children's Home in Greenwood has been filling those needs since 1892. Today, seventy-two children reside in nine family-styled homes on the main campus in Greenwood. Randy McManus is the Campus Administrator. An additional eight children live at the Cooper Nixon Shelter Care, which is nestled on the farm that Connie Maxwell continues to maintain. Crystal Champion oversees the work at Cooper Nixon Shelter Care. Brian Patterson directs our Family Care Program which assists single parents going through difficult times. Wanting to have an activity on the farm, then contact Brad Martin.  Looking for a future position with Connie Maxwell then contact Kevin Crittendon by email.

The children, from elementary school to middle school to high school, are involved in public education and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities. It is our goal to give children in need the best of care and that is why all of Connie Maxwell's programs are accredited by the EAGLE Accreditation Commission. Connie Maxwell's goal is to reunite children with their families whenever possible; therefore, our practice is to have the family or custodian live as close as possible, as we serve the residents of South Carolina. Joyce Decker is our Intake Administrator on the Greenwood Campus and she can be reached by calling 1 (864) 942-1400 or 1 (800) 868-2624. You may write us at P.O. Box 1178, Greenwood, SC 29648-1178.
