Hope, Safety and Opportunity for Young Women

Every 154 minutes a South Carolina teen gives birth. Less than 50% will finish high school, increasing the likelihood that they will live in poverty and have unstable housing. 

Young women in foster care are also more likely to become homeless at an earlier age and drop out of school. Over 70 percent will become pregnant by 21. 

Our mission is to provide hope, safety and opportunity to young women in order to instill self-worth and self-sufficiency. We value the right of every young woman to obtain the education, skills, and support needed to have a healthy start in life – for today and tomorrow.  That’s why we provide programming to help pregnant and at-risk girls gain the skills they need to become independent.  

Located in downtown Charleston, we have been serving the state of South Carolina since 1897.
