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 or call HeartFelt Calling at (888) 828-3555.SC DSS flyer re: foster children and homes
