Youth Center, Inc. is a private, non-profit agency committed to
providing comprehensive residential services for up to 20 abused,
abandoned, and grossly neglected youth, ages 10-21. It is the first and only
low management group home in Horry County.
objective is to allow the adolescents in our care to remain in the
community while receiving the long term therapeutic services they so
desperately need. Our goal is to provide continuous opportunities
for the development of positive self-esteem, academic/vocational abilities, and the life skills
necessary to become productive, contributing members of society. In
addition, we strive to help the adolescents in our care grow past their
painful experiences and discover the happiness and security that can be
reached through healthy, nurturing relationships.
Our success is largely measured by our residents' ability
to surround themselves with a caring network of community supporters, reinforcing that the community does not hold them responsible for
their own child abuse and neglect. It is only then that they will
acquire a sense of belonging and value within the community.
