Boys & Girls Club of The Grand Strand

“To inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.” It is the movement’s reason for being.

In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of belonging, usefulness, influence and competence. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow — all while having fun.

Children’s Recovery Center

The Children’s Recovery Center is the child advocacy center for Horry and Georgetown Counties. Our mission is to offer hope and healing to child abuse victims. Children come here by way of referral either by law enforcement, DSS or a medical provider. The children who come here, ages 0-17 are victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse and many kinds of neglect and maltreatment. Each child who comes to the CRC receives, a forensic medical exam, a forensic interview, education, advocacy, and referrals for other services as needed. There is never a charge for a child to receive any services from our agency. We work in collaboration with our community partners to find the best outcome for each child who comes through our doors. We want these children to heal from the trauma they have been through while they are still children giving them the opportunity for attainable bright futures.

Help 4 Kids

In 1989 after Hurricane Hugo hit, Barb Mains along with her sister and friend went out into the “country” to see if they could help. Instead of destruction, they found poverty. People existed without bathrooms or running water,holes in roofs and floors,no beds, stoves, food or shoes. Barb decided she had to do something to help these people. Fast forward to today. We currently deliver food to 40 Horry County schools and feed 3,000 children each week. Teachers discreetly place the food sacks into the children’s backpacks on Friday afternoon so that these children have something to eat on the weekend. In addition to food, we provide clothing, school supplies, backpacks, blankets, coats, Easter baskets, and Christmas presents. As a 100% volunteer organization, we rely on the entire community to focus on our mission of “No Kid Hungry” . Our volunteers that answer the phones, pack food sacks, volunteer at fundraisers, pick up donations and deliver food snacks to the schools. By changing these basics, we have a great start on helping these kids be what they have the potential to be, one child at a time.
