CHampions for change

We recently hosted Champions for Change, an exclusive evening honoring an adoptee, adoptive parent, adoption professional, and government official. Award winners were nominated by their peers as Champions for Change in 2023. We are extremely grateful to everyone who attended and for the great honor of highlighting the collective power in the room that evening as we continued collaborative conversations to strive to meet the needs of South Carolina children and families in the years to come.


Thank you to our award winners who aim to meet the needs of vulnerable children in South Carolina.
