FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE EPISCOPAL DIOCESE OF UPPER SOUTH CAROLINA TO RESUME MISSION AND MINISTRY AT YORK PLACE

February 16, 2017

The Episcopal Church Home at York Place, Inc., an institution of the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina, has assumed ownership of York Place, also known over the years as the Episcopal Home for Children, from Thompson Child and Family Focus, who owned and operated York Place for the past several years, Bishop W. Andrew Waldo announced today.

This transaction honors the devotion and dedication of not only Episcopalians in South Carolina but countless others of all faiths, some of whom grew up at York Place, volunteered there or had family helped by the caring services provided over many years at York Place, which strove to provide hope and healing to the most vulnerable children and families in our communities.

A vision task force will consider proposals for continuing and honoring the original mission of York Place.  

Bishop Waldo stated, “Opportunities for continuing this important ministry on this beautiful and historic site are wide-ranging.  We will strive to ensure facets of our historic work with children and youth in the tradition of York Place continue. We thank all York Place supporters for sustaining and strengthening the very important work that transforms the lives of families entrusted to our care. “
