Parenting Again

Family Care

The families requesting assistance typically are physically and emotionally exhausted as well as economically depleted. Many are the hidden  homeless living with family and friends and acknowledge that this  arrangement is only temporary. Others are still in their own homes but  are behind in both their bills and rent and are just days away from  eviction. Since housing is unstable, jobs are often in jeopardy. As a  result, children are insecure and parents are stressed and often  depressed. We are here to help!

Foster Care

There are so many great resources out there for families who are in the Foster & Adoption Ministry. We are partnering with these agencies to make it convenient for families to find what they need in one place. Our mission is to provide safe, loving homes for children in need by connecting South Carolina churches and Christian families with community partners while inspiring, encouraging and resourcing the vulnerable and those who care for them.

Residential Care

Children are accepted on the basis of need and our ability to help them.  Referrals may come from any concerned person who knows of a child in  need of residential placement. However, an application can only be taken from a parent or legal custodian who is a South Carolina resident. An  initial interview with the parent and child is held either on the campus or at one of the regional offices. If the parent wants to pursue  admission for his or her child, application materials are given at that  time. A family service worker assists the parents or guardian in the  application process, and gathers as much information as possible to  determine the appropriateness of Connie Maxwell’s services to the needs  of the child and family. The application process may take as little as  several hours for the shelter programs to several weeks for the other  residential programs. Randy McManus serves as our Campus Administrator and also acts as Intake Coordinator in Greenwood, at 1-800-868-2624
