Every day, children across South Carolina suffer from abuse and neglect. In 2010, over 12,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect. In addition, over 55,000 of South Carolina's children live in the full-time care of grandparents and other relatives so that they will not have to enter the foster care system.
At HALOS (Helping And Lending Outreach Support), we provide assistance to abused and neglected children in Charleston County and to their caregivers. Through a variety of programs and initiatives, we help to improve the lives of these children.
