Frequently Asked Questions

The Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter, Inc. is a residential program for the temporary, emergency care of children who have experienced physically or sexually abused, neglected, abandoned, exploited or caught in the midst of family crisis. The Shelter operates twenty-four hours a day, year-round to care for children from birth to 18 years of age. The youngest child we served so far was 8 hours old. The Shelter uniquely blends diverse children in a family like setting with house parents providing nurture and love.

The Shelter is the oldest facility of its type in South Carolina and serves approximately 85 to 100 children annually. Since the Shelter was opened, it has cared for more than 5,000 children. Children, from all areas of the county and all socioeconomic settings, are placed at the Shelter by public agencies. While in placement, children attend public school, receive counseling, medical care, recreational, cultural, social, and religious opportunities, as well as lots of love.
