Thornwell Home for Children

The Thornwell Home for Children in Clinton, South Carolina, has been taking care of children and youth in need since its founding on October 1, 1875.  With the support of Presbyterian Church (USA) congregations and private donations, the home nurtures and educates more than 100 children, many of whom suffer from mild to moderate emotional problems stemming from the death of parent(s); a separation or divorce resulting in a temporary inability to care for a child; a temporary financial and/or physical inability to care for a child; families experiencing types of dependency or abuse; and parent's/guardian's disabling health or advanced age.  Westminster sponsors two cottages, Berkele and Ferguson.
