The community need:

Spartanburg County has high rates of child abuse and children who are exposed to family violence, substance abuse and poverty issues.

 What we do:

Hope Center for Children, which is the result of a merger in 2013 between the Children Shelter of the Upstate and Ellen Hines Smith Girls’ Home, has a mission to build stable, healthy families and provide children a safe place from abuse and neglect.  They have five primary programs that work toward this goal; two programs serve families with increased risk of abuse or neglect, two provide around-the-clock care for children who are victims of abuse or neglect and one program works with youth who are homeless.  In 2015, Hope Center for Children, served 2,183 children; 89% of these children were served through the prevention programs.
