A note from our CEO...
Carolina Family Services, Inc. was created to meet a need for quality, family based community services in the Upstate of South Carolina. What began in my living room in 2006, has now grown to an agency providing services in 28 of the counties within our state. We have a staff of over 100 that have touched the lives of over 6,500 families within the past 10 years. We have excellent clinical outcomes in all of our treatment programs, and the families we work with consistently express their satisfaction with the quality of the services they received.
It is with the same ambitious, innovative, and collaborative spirit that we move towards developing another much needed program in our community: a free public charter school designed specifically for children with an autism spectrum diagnosis. Garrison Crossing Academy (GCA) hopes to become a reality in opening for the 2017-2018 academic year as a K-5 charter school in the old Baker's Chapel Elementary property. The school will not only provide an individualized educational experience for each child, but will also offer clinical components designed to increase social interaction, increase communication, and provide community integration experiences. Programming will also include education, assistance, and support for our student’s families.
Please continue to monitor our website for details on our fundraising progress. There you will also find links to our social media accounts detailing the progress of the renovation and development of the facility. Thanks for your continued support of Carolina Family Services!
