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?

 

The children that we serve have a variety of needs when they come into our care. SCYAP has developed several specialized programs to help with some of these needs that are not covered by either federal or state funding. Without the generosity of donors, like you, these programs would not be possible.
