Since 1896, Epworth Children’s Home has been a place for children to grow, learn and be loved. Children ages 12 and up 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.
The mission of Epworth Children’s Home is to serve children, youth and families through caring, safe, Christian communities, where hurts are healed, hope is nurtured, and faith in God, self, and others is developed.
The vision of Epworth Children’s Home is to provide superior services for the greatest number of individuals through competent, caring adults who are trained in the most effective, research-based methods of child and family care.
We value the children whom we serve and the families they represent.
