All About the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter

Since its founding in 1972, the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter has provided safe harbor for thousands of children in Lexington County. Their stories are often horrific; most suffered abuse, neglect, or abandonment at the hands of those whom they trusted most.

Here they found shelter— and so much more. A home environment filled with love, kindness, and gentle guidance. The security of a family-like atmosphere, headed by houseparents who live in the facility. School, church, medical attention, and counseling. These children need so much.

The Shelter is a member of The Association of Fundraising Professionals, The SC Association of Non-Profit Organizations,The SC Association of Children’s Homes and Family Services, and the Lexington, West-Metro, and Irmo Chambers of Commerce.
