Epworth Children's Home


Epworth Children's Home in Columbia, SC provides a safe, stable and loving environment for every child who calls this beautiful 32 acre campus “home.” Children between the ages of four and eighteen come to Epworth in one of two ways:

1) Government Placements are referred to ECH by the SC Department of Social Services after being removed from their current home environment for abuse or neglect. Government placements make up an average of 65% of Epworth’s total population.

2) Private Family Placements are referred to ECH by a family member or a member of the child’s community, such as a pastor or grandparent. Private placements make up the remaining 35% of the population.

As a member of a local United Methodist Church we take up special offerings for the home as well as providing resources thru our annual budget. Just take a look and I think you will be amazed at all the home does to provide for a much needed group of children.  There are so many ways you can help so if you love children this is another great outreach you can be involved in: http://www.epworthchildrenshome.org/
