Carolina Children's Home (CCH) was founded in 1909 as an orphanage in a rented home on Assembly Street in downtown Columbia. CCH eventually moved to its better-known campus off Trenholm Road, where over the past 100+ years it provided a caring home, education, counseling and clinical mental health services to children, young adults and their families. In the fall of 2015, CCH closed its patient programs and subsequently sold its property.
"Today, rather than through the traditional programs and bricks and mortar services, the Carolina Children's Home board is pleased to continue the mission of CCH 'to meet the underserved mental and physical needs of children, young adults and their families' through providing scholarships and grants and advocacy to children's initiatives in South Carolina's Midlands" stated Stephen Creech, Chair, Board of Directors.
