The Issue: Lack of Resources for Relocated Children

Children's Defense Fund data indicates that a child in South Carolina is abused or neglected every 45 minutes. The research also shows that 26% of children in South Carolina live below the poverty line. When children are removed from abusive or neglectful homes, they may have to live with extended family members to avoid foster care, and those relatives may lack adequate resources to care for them. A crib can give a grandparent or another relative the means to offer a safe, nurturing environment for a child coming into their care.

The Campaign: Providing a Crib for a Relocated Child

If this Grassroots campaign raises $210, then HALOS can provide a crib for a child who has been removed from an abusive or neglectful home. Each additional $210 raised will provide a crib for another child. HALOS works with more than 50 local community groups, including the Department of Social Services, to pinpoint need and coordinate the donation of goods and furniture. After identifying a child who has been moved to a new home following abuse or neglect, a caseworker will deliver a new crib to the family and ensure it has everything necessary to foster a safe environment for the baby.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

HALOS

While working at the Medical University of South Carolina as a child psychiatrist and pediatrician, Dr. Eve Spratt witnessed the lack of resources available for children who had been removed from their homes. In 1997, she formed HALOS to improve the quality of life for young survivors of abuse and neglect. HALOS collaborates with the Department of Social Services and the Harmony Project to deliver donated items to local families, redistributing furniture to improve families’ quality of life, prevent overburdening the state’s social services, and keep the items from clogging landfills. HALOS caseworkers then track the impact the donated items have on families and children to determine whether they provide a measurable benefit.
