Thornwell Home for Children


The Thornwell Home for Children in Clinton, South Carolina, was established in 1875, and continues to be a joyful Christian community. Thornwell serves as a home for children who for various reasons can no longer live in their own homes. Instead of functioning like a traditional orphanage, Thornwell places children in cottages with “family teachers”, who serve as role models and parental figures.

Each summer, children from Grace Community Church travel to the Thornwell Home to participate in a week of service and fun.

I am interested in more information on going on a mission trip to Thornwell.
