On our campus in Awendaw we have two levels of residential care, a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) and a Level 3 Residential Group Care Program for young boys ages six through sixteen.
In Spring 2011 we opened outpatient-counseling center in Mt. Pleasant at 900 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. Suite 110. Independently licensed practitioners provide individual, group, and family therapy services for children and adolescents 2-21. Specialized therapy services include Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) – for children 2-7 and their parents, and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). We accept SC Medicaid, several of the MCO Medicaid insurance programs, and other private insurance such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, and Tri-Care.
Community-Based Prevention Services is provided to families in Charleston and Dorchester counties as a preventative service for families who are at risk or are suspected of abuse and neglect of children residing in their home. We provide in-home interventions over several months in an attempt to decrease stressors that are negatively affecting the primary caregiver’s ability to provide a safe, violence free environment for their children.
Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Services are also provided for children residing in the community. These services may be provided on our campus, in our outpatient-counseling center, in the home, or the school of the child, or at a location that is convenient for the family and child. Included in this service is individual, group, and family therapy, family support, psycho-social rehabilitative services, and behavior modification.
Family Group Conferencing is provided to primary caregivers and their support system, for example their extended family and friends who are working together to ensure their children are able to be cared for within the family unit.
The state Fire Marshall provides oversight for both programs. Our state’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) provides oversight to all of the programs that provide reimbursement through Medicaid. Each program we operate was awarded to us through a state contract that clearly defines our obligations through standards that have been set by the state or by the terms of any grant that has been received. Agency policies and procedures are reviewed and approved by our Board of Directors.
Financial support from individual donors and a solid, dedicated group of volunteers who assist us in many ways to defer costs, are vital in maintaining our programs and make up for the additional 20% needed to balance our budget.

We appreciate the opportunity to meet new friends, and we rely on this source of manpower to accomplish much of our property maintenance. Without volunteers we could not adequately maintain our facilities nor offer as many social opportunities to our boys. Each year, we attribute saving several tens of thousands of dollars in purchasing services, goods, and labor because of our loyal volunteers.
