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 have two different programs that need foster parents: Therapeutic Foster Care and Resource Family Program.

How Can I Help?


There are several ways to get involved and begin that first step of change in a child's life from becoming a Therapeutic Foster Parent or a Resource Foster Family to giving a donation. It all starts with you.
