Palmetto Place Annual Report 2015
Transcript of Palmetto Place Annual Report 2015
The Road So Far
Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter is a safe haven for abused and neglected children and homeless teens throughout the state of South Carolina. We provide a safe and nurturing environment where children have access to after-school programs, tutoring, recreational and social activities. We offer a broad range of services that concentrate on personal healing and development including medical attention, mental health care, crisis adjustment and transitional counseling.
Since the Shelter opened in 1977, we have cared for more than 7,000 at-risk children from newborn to age 18.
About Palmetto Place
Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter is a temporary shelter for abused, abandoned and neglected children in the Midlands. The Shelter cares for kids 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. When home is not a safe and loving place, we open our doors and offer each child the opportunity for a better, healthier and more productive future.

Beach Trip 2015
Taking the kids to the beach is one of our favorite things to do!
Flying kites on the beach for the 1st time!
These feet had never been to a beach before! What a great experience!
Watching the boats from the pier!
"Turn me into a mermaid!"

We had a long term resident graduate from high school, get her first car, and move into college! We love seeing our kids take the next step!
We love exposing our kids to new experiences! They had so much fun this year!
Learning how to cook!

This money helps us provide kids with much more than food and shelter. We’re able to make sure kids can participate in after school activities, go to the fair, get a Halloween costume, celebrate birthdays, Christmas and many other milestones and so much more throughout the year!
With your support we were able to raise $30,000 for Palmetto Place!
