Family Connection of South Carolina has a long history of providing parent-to-parent support to families of children with disabilities or special healthcare needs. Each year, hundreds of families in our state are connected with veteran “mentor” parents who have walked a similar journey.

Families with shared experiences are uniquely qualified to help each other, offering support, guidance and encouragement. Because of this, all of our programs and services are family centered and based on the concept of parent-to-parent support. Whether you’re just beginning your journey or have a question along the way, we offer a variety of services and resources that can help.

Direct Supports include residential programs, vocational programs, adult activity centers, early intervention, respite, and case management.

Indirectly, the Horry County Disabilities & Special Needs Board authorizes services such as personal care aides, durable medical supplies, LPN and RN nursing services, assistive technology, intensive behavioral support and environmental and vehicle modifications through different Home and Community Based Waiver programs (enhanced Medicaid programs).

These services are funded through specialized Medicaid Waivers. There are extensive state-wide waiting lists for many of these specialized waivers.
