Welcome to the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter
Since its founding in 1972, the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter has provided safe harbor for thousands of children in Lexington County. Their stories are often horrific; most suffered abuse, neglect, or abandonment at the hands of those whom they trusted most.
Here they found shelter— and so much more. A home environment filled with love, kindness, and gentle guidance. The security of a family-like atmosphere, headed by houseparents who live in the facility. School, church, medical attention, and counseling. These children need so much.
The Mission of the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter is to provide residential care, safety, and nurture to children who are in crisis because of abuse, neglect, abandonment, exploitation, or caregiver emergency.
