Connie Maxwell Children’s Home has a long history of caring for children and their families, and has continued to develop new programs with individualized services that provide stability and Christ-centered support during their time of need. Each year, more than 200 children and their families participate in one of our core programs: residential care, crisis care, foster care and family care.
Residential Care is the heart of our ministry at Connie Maxwell and provides children with a safe, secure, loving and Christian environment. Sometimes families need a “home away from home” to care for their children while they face temporary challenges. This is exactly what our residential care program offers. Trained, compassionate caregivers meet each child’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs, and families can rest assured that their children are well cared for while they work through their challenging circumstances.
Connie Maxwell Children’s Home has emergency cottages located on the Greenwood and Chesterfield campuses that are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They accept children and teens who need immediate, short-term relief from a difficult situation. Our crisis care program offers many of the same recreational activities as our residential care program. These activities provide our children a rich and full life.
Family Care exists to restore families in our community. We provide hope, comfort, and shelter while they locate the resources needed to move toward independent living. This program equips single parents from all walks of life so they can focus on resolving their individual crisis and temporary family instability.
Foster parenting is a vital ministry to precious children who often come from tragic circumstances. Our mission is to provide safe, loving homes for children in need by connecting South Carolina churches and Christian families with community partners. Opportunities for respite care and resource families to support our residential children and foster families are also available.
