About 
Pendleton Place

In 1975, the Junior League of Greenville established Pendleton Place as an emergency shelter for children entering foster care.

 

Over the years, we have evolved into a community cornerstone for children and families experiencing foster care, homelessness, poverty, and other forms of trauma.

 

We offer programs that offer housing, hope, and healing.

We strengthen children while rebuilding families, because our vision is that children and youth are safe, families are whole, and communities are strong.

Give

 

When you invest in  Pendleton Place, you are investing in a better future for children, youth and families. 

Your investment will help us continue to: 

  • Support formerly homeless youth through shelter, case management, and housing coordination. Last year, we reinvested $132,000 in housing supports. 

​​

  • Provide a loving home and independent living training to teenagers in foster care at Smith House.

​​

  • Advocate for kinship caregivers and prevent foster care entry through family mediation.

Give Back!

Children, youth, and families come to Pendleton Place for many different reasons, but every one of them need nurturing support.

 

You can provide them with care and compassion when you volunteer! 

 

Volunteers deeply enrich our clients' lives and help support our operations! 

 

Our goal is to match your talents and interests with the needs of our programs. We have individual and group opportunities available at all times. 

All volunteers must pass routine background checks.
