South Carolina needs more than 1,600 additional foster families to care for our most vulnerable children
If we had enough families, children could be placed in foster homes within their same school district. They could keep their same teachers, and their education would not be put in jeopardy. Keeping children in their same school gives them more stability and a better chance to survive whatever circumstances they are facing. For more information about becoming a foster parent, visit scfamilies.org or call HeartFelt Calling at (888) 828-3555.The SC Education Policy Fellowship Program
is a 10-month professional development program for established and emerging leaders in education and related fields designed to work toward the implementation of sound education policy and practice in South Carolina. 2018-19 applications due August 24, 2018.
