WELCOME TO SCYAP! ......We Care About Kids!


The South Carolina Youth Advocate Program (commonly known as SCYAP) is a private, non-profit organization that supports and facilitates the development and operation of community-based residential and non-residential services for youth and their families.

We believe that children do best when they are with their families and that they should be served in their own homes or in a family setting when out-of-home placement is necessary.

Become A Foster Parent


Foster parents are very special people. They bring children into their homes and hearts. We are always looking for foster parents for our Therapeutic Foster Care Program and our Traditional Foster Care Program.

 


How Can I Help?


SCYAP would like to extend a big thank you to Collins and Lacy, P.C., a South Carolina law firm, for supporting our foster children through our Precious Cargo Program. Collins and Lacy is asking their employees in their Columbia, Greenville, and Myrtle Beach offices, as well as the general public, to make donations to SCYAP from May 16-27, to ensure that each foster child who comes into our care receives his/her own Precious Cargo bag. The bags are filled with basic hygiene items, school supplies, a blanket, and a stuffed animal. This is a way we can show love and support for all of our foster children. Follow this link to read more about the Collins and Lacy Precious Cargo drive on their website at http://www.collinsandlacy.com/
Again, thank you Collins and Lacy! If you would like to make a financial contribution to Precious Cargo, click the "Read More" link below to visit our Donation Page.
