When children arrive at CYDC in need of a safe, stable place to call home; some are in-between foster homes, others are waiting to move to a forever home, and some will live with us until adulthood. Whatever their next step, it's important that they are welcomed into a supportive transition home that provides educational, vocational and recreational activities, keeping them on the path to a bright future.
Children and youth live in a cottage environment that nurtures their individual needs while sharing in the responsibilities and opportunities of living in a home-like setting. There are two cottages on CYDC's North Charleston Campus, known as Ledford and CES, and one cottage at its Moncks Corner campus known as Callen-Lacey Center for Children.
The Give Me Shelter Color 5K is for singles, couples, families, colleagues and friends. Children under the age of 5 years are free however, no race event shirt will be provided.
