Three Rivers Respite is a seven-acre camp located near Charleston, S.C., that serves as a safe place for children in foster care to bond with other kids on a similar journey.
Our goal at Three Rivers Respite is to get kids out in nature to experience the therapeutic aspects of being in the woods, away from the stress of daily life and disconnected from electronics. We want them to have fun with counselors and adults who care about them and are trained to connect with them, and provide the right support in the most trying circumstances.
We want to build a community of love and support around foster care families. We understand the joys and challenges of foster care. We know foster parents and children in foster care both need a break—and all parents need a time of rest.
Short-term respite is an important resource for families to continue the challenging work of caring for children in their home. It also gives the children a much-needed break from the hard realities of foster care.
Three Rivers Respite is a 501(c)(3) organization that is funded by gifts and donations. All donations are tax deductible.
