Originally established in 1790 as the Charleston Orphan House, Carolina Youth Development Center is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to empowering and equipping our community’s most vulnerable children by providing a safe environment, educational support, and career readiness. While services have grown to include outreach to at-risk children and families throughout the community, CYDC’s most enduring program is its residential foster home, which serves children throughout the state of South Carolina who are victims of physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse, neglect and abandonment. For information visit CYDC.org or call (843)266-5200.
