A better future for South Carolina

Children’s Trust is South Carolina’s leader for the prevention of child abuse, neglect and injuries. We want every child to experience a great childhood, growing up healthy, nurtured, safe and strong.  South Carolina’s vulnerable children and families need solutions, grounded in research and fueled by collaboration, that focus on two-generation strategies and sustainability to reduce child abuse and neglect in our state.

We know a better future starts with better childhoods, and when prevention is strong, South Carolina is strong.
