50 Years of Doing Whatever It Takes

Fifty years ago, a group of community leaders led by a local family court judge founded, what was then, the Youth Treatment Center for Boys.  It began as a small non-profit residential setting on County Home Road in Anderson, South Carolina in 1974.  The organization grew to become Anderson Youth Association, and a home for girls was added in 1976.  Since that time, services have grown, focusing on prevention and intervention as well, creating a true continuum of care for children and families. 

In 2000, Anderson Youth Association became New Foundations Children & Family Services, Inc.  We continued under that name for almost 10 years until we reached back to our roots and officially changed our name to New Foundations Home for Children. Since our inception, thousands of children and families have been helped, not only through our Group Homes, but now also through our Foster Care and In-Home support services. 

As a testament to our mission New Foundations has continuously earned national accreditation through the Council on Accreditation for Children and Families (COA). Since 1995 we have engaged in COA in-depth reviews every four years. These reviews focus on our services, administration, and community Board oversight. The process takes 12-18 months and involves staff in every program and at all levels, our Board of Directors, and community stakeholders. COA recognizes NFHFC as an organization successfully implementing high performance standards and delivering the highest quality of services.  For more on the Council on Accreditation, please visit https://coanet.org/home/.

We are relentless in our pursuit to keep children safe, strengthen families, and provide needed treatment interventions. and you are, and have been, instrumental in making a true impact on the community. The staff and volunteers of New Foundations believe that community support is the very framework by which the agency was built.  We hope you will join us as we continue to dedicated our time, energy, and efforts in helping the children and families of South Carolina. 

We appreciate all you have done for the kids and the community for the past 50 years.  You have shown your dedication to the Upstate community. With your continued help, New Foundations will thrive for another 50 years! 

Best Regards,

Steve Dean, CEO

NASCAR Driver for a day!

Enjoy a package for two that provides classroom training AND the ability to drive real NASCAR Monster Energy Cup cars on a professional superspeedway track (Atlanta or Charlotte Motor Speedways).

There is no lead car to follow and no instructor riding with you. Personal racing instructors communicate with you using 2-way radio racing electronics, as well as be your spotter, coaching you during the racing sessions and helping you achieve fast speeds safely. Passing is allowed — pass the slower cars as you catch them, putting the pedal to the metal and seeing if you have what it takes to be a NASCAR driver!
