Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter

Since its founding in 1972, the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter has provided safe harbor for thousands of children in Lexington County. Their stories are often horrific; most suffered abuse, neglect, or abandonment at the hands of those whom they trusted most. Here they found shelter— and so much more. A home environment filled with love, kindness, and gentle guidance. The security of a family-like atmosphere, headed by houseparents who live in the facility. School, church, medical attention, and counseling. These children need so much. The Shelter is a member of The Association of Fundraising Professionals, The SC Association of Non-Profit Organizations,The SC Association of Childrens Homes and Family Services, and the Lexington, West-Metro, and Irmo Chambers of Commerce.

Dickerson Children’s Advocacy Center

Dickerson Children’s Advocacy Center, works with children affected by physical and sexual abuse, drug endangerment, and the witnessing of violence. They provide a safe and caring environment where children and their non-abusive parent(s) or guardians can receive services and emotional support under one roof. They are a child-focused facility that provides forensic interviews, forensic medicals, mental health and victim advocate services to victims of child abuse between the ages of 0 to 18. Providing these services in a single location can help alleviate additional stress and trauma that that these children can experience by moving between agencies.
