Palmetto Place Children's Shelter is a home for abused, abandoned, and neglected children and teens from across the state of South Carolina. Palmetto Place has two locations, a children's shelter and a teen house. Both locations are open 24 hours a day 365 days a year to care for the state's most vulnerable children and teens. We provide medical and mental health care, crisis adjustment/transitional counseling, after school tutoring and recreational and social activities in addition to food, clothing and shelter.
When home is not a safe and loving place, we open our doors and offer the opportunity for a better, healthier and more productive future. Since the Shelter opened in 1977, more than 7,000 children and teens have called Palmetto Place home.
