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.
AT A GLANCE
Training, education and support provided for foster parents
Respite care and resource families needed
Individual and group counseling provided
Connie Maxwell Children’s Home is a fully accredited licensing agency for families interested in foster care. Once you begin the licensing process, you will be paired with a Connie Maxwell licensing worker that will support, encourage, and serve as a resource for you along your journey. Once you complete the process, you will be eligible to have SC DSS children placed in your home.
Respite Foster Family
A respite foster family goes through the full licensing process of a foster family. As a respite family, you would have the opportunity to mentor a child in residential care, and invite that child for overnight visits throughout the year or during holidays and special occasions. You also have the opportunity to relieve and support other foster families that have children in their care.
A resource family has many of the same opportunities of a foster family to mentor a child in our residential care. While resource families can invite children to special events or day trips, they cannot have children in their care for overnight visits. Resource families are required to pass a background check and submit a driving record from the DMV.
