Family means SO much to us!

 Recently, Dorothy, one of our former residents said,

One day, I was placed at Southeastern Children’s Home. I finally knew for the first time that I was home! My first house parents were Dean and Lori Tripp. They made me feel loved, and they helped me feel secure. I enjoyed getting to do what normal kids did. I knew I was living in a group home, but it didn’t feel like a group home. It felt like family.

We love the fact that Dorothy immediately felt like family. We want every child to have a family.  

This year, our family has an immediate need for a used van that will be used to transport children to school, church, and other activities.  Please consider giving a donation to help us as we continue to be family to abused and neglected children in the Upstate of South Carolina.

Thank you so much for being part of our family, and being willing to help provide families for others!
