Happy Birthday to CYDC!

This October, Carolina Youth Development Center (CYDC) will celebrate its 230th anniversary!

On October 18, 1790, the city of Charleston passed an ordinance that established the Charleston Orphan House for the purpose of supporting and educating the city’s orphaned youth. The non-profit officially changed its name to the Carolina Youth Development Center in 1978 but continued its long-practiced mission of protecting children, empowering families and preparing youth for adulthood.

For nearly two and a half centuries, CYDC has served South Carolina children and families.CYDC’s Birthday Bash will run virtually from their Facebook page from October 13th-18th and include the ribbon cutting on their new George Williams Family Support Center. Celebrate with us wherever you are!
