New Foundations Home for Children offers a Group Care Intensive Services program focused on young men, ages 15-21.

GCIS – Pathways is an independent living program housed in a two-story house in Anderson, SC.

 

In this program, we provide for all basic needs and continued counseling. However, because of the ages of these youths and their limited family connections, there is an enhanced teaching independent living component in this program. The program allows youths to receive individual and group instruction in adult living skills such as budgeting, interviewing, banking, etc. Youths also continue with education and vocational assessments and exploration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is an increased focus on experiential learning based on the youth’s level of maturity and responsibility.

  • 24 hours awake supervision, 1:5 staff to client ratio
