Hope Center for Children

The mission of Hope Center for Children (HCFC) is to build stable, healthy families and to provide children a safe place from abuse and neglect.  HCFC is the result of a 2013 merger between two organizations with histories of providing residential care for children in foster care, The Ellen Hines Smith Girls’ Home and the Children’s Shelter of the Upstate.

Today, HCFC continues to provide residential care for at-risk youth in our three residential programs.  The Agency has expanded to include community-based case management programs with the goal to educate parents and equip them with the tools and resources they need to be confident and successful in their roles and bring stability to their families.
