Mission & Vision

About Us

Since 1896, Epworth Children’s Home has been a place for children to grow, learn and be loved. Children ages four – 18 come to us from severely stressed family systems and our goal is to nurture and love them by providing education, counseling, medical care and spiritual enrichment. Our aim is to break the destructive cycle of abuse, neglect and shame and replace it with an opportunity for each child to live a life of self-respect, responsibility and productivity.

Epworth is licensed by the SC Department of Social Services and is recognized as a 501(c)(3) private, child and family service organization. We are also members by the United Methodist Association of Health & Welfare Ministries.
