Future business and community leaders are born every day, but new data show South Carolina’s children struggle to reach important milestones. For children and families of color, the struggle is even greater.
As the statewide organization that prevents child abuse, neglect and injury, Children’s Trust supports targeted policies and programs that ensure all children, regardless of race, are safe, healthy and ready for the future. Children’s Trust encourages all South Carolinians who care about children – legislators, parents, business and community leaders and advocates – to use the data and recommendations to make decisions. Three publications – Race for Results: Building Opportunity for South Carolina’s Children (PDF), the South Carolina Racial Equity Impact Assessment Guide (PDF), and the Early Childhood Common Agenda (PDF) – are available to help guide decision making to improve the lives of all children.
