At South Carolina First Steps, preparing children for school is much more than our mission, it’s our responsibility. Because every child is born with unlimited potential, but not all children in South Carolina have a fair chance to thrive. With your help, we can change that. Together, we can create a future in which every child — in every part of the state — is healthy, nurtured, and ready for success in school and in life. Your support is already working — last year we doubled the number of children directly served: 57,453. Yet we are still only reaching 48% of those in need. Will you help us reach even more this holiday season?
We know that 90% of brain development happens before age five, when a child starts kindergarten. That’s why we must start early and ensure that every child is ready. Will you help us build a brighter future for ALL of South Carolina’s children?
