About the Berkeley County Campus

The Callen-Lacey Center for Children was established in response to a critical need identified by the 1992 Trident United Way Needs Assessment. The assessment identified several crucial areas of focus for the community, including the need for support for children in crisis. As a result, community members came together to form the Give Me Shelter Committee to focus on addressing this critical issue.

As a result of Landmarks for Families’ history and success serving the Lowcountry through its residential care and community-based programs, the Give Me Shelter Committee, Berkeley County office of the Department of Social Services (DSS), and Trident United Way asked Landmarks for Families to establish a shelter in Berkeley County to serve children in crisis.

With the support of individuals and businesses in the Berkeley County community, including Trident United Way, Roper St. Francis Healthcare, the Housing Trust Fund of SC, and the Duke Endowment, funds were raised to build a new campus in Moncks Corner that would provide a safe and nurturing environment to help youth and families reach their full potential.

Since its opening in 1998, Landmarks for Families’ Callen-Lacey Center for Children has been home to more than 1,100 children ranging from newborn to 21 years old.
