ABOUT THORNWELL HOME FOR CHILDREN ...

Thornwell Home for Children is all about helping children and youth—caring for them, nurturing them, helping prepare them to become the faithful individuals God created them to be.

Founded in 1875, today Thornwell is a vital ministry of the Presbyterian Church (USA), children and families throughout the three-state region of the Synod of the South Atlantic—South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

Each year, Thornwell’s referral network receives more than 300 calls from families in crisis; and, each year, more than 100 children find their way to our home. Most come to us battered and broken, frightened, full of sadness and despair. We offer them a safe haven; a warm, loving, family-style community in which to grow and thrive.

A not-for-profit organization, Thornwell is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by the Synod. All of our services, programs, and ministries are made possible by the grace of God, the Synod’s 1,000 PC (USA) churches in 16 presbyteries and their individual members, and other generous individuals and organizations.
