Welcome to the website of the Laurens County Foster Parent Association

The Laurens County Foster Parent Association is a group of individuals who are committed to providing a loving and stable home to children who are in the custody of the Laurens County Department of Social Services primarily due to the abuse or neglect of the children.  

We are a diverse group and we welcome people of all races, religions, and national origin.  We believe that children are treasures we must protect.  We hold monthly meetings and have a permanent office located on the Public Square in Laurens City, South Carolina.  We pride ourself on our varied socio-economic diversity.   We work in conjuction with the Department of Social Services, guardians-ad-Litem, courts and a variety of other organizations to provide everything necessary to foster a brighter future for "our children."

We welcome the interest of any person or organization in becoming a foster parent, becoming a guardian or mentor.  We also embrace anyone who wishes to help with the needs of the children.  We are a non-profit group and we rely solely on private funds.

Our mission is to provide Love, Stability, and Understanding to children in need.

We have an "adopt a child program" whereby you can select from a list of children and provide an item they need or desire.  You will be given a first name, age, clothing and shoe sizes and a brief statement about the child, their hopes and dreams.  Due to confidentiality we cannot provide a picture or information which would allow anyone to identify the children.

If you want information about becoming a foster parent please contact Clyde L. Pennington, Jr. at or  If you wish any other information or wish to help please contact us at or
