Least of These Carolinas' mission is to improve the quality of life of children affected by foster & kinship care. We have a multitude of programs and services that allow children in care to maintain some sense of normalcy. A few of our programs: Bags of Hope - Bridge Camp - Shoes of Hope - Beds of Hope - 12 Hours of Christmas


  • Wholeness: We are committed to making a holistic impact on the whole child - nurturing their body, enriching their soul, and uplifting their spirits.
  • Hope: We are dedicated to equipping and empowering those we serve, laying the foundation for a brighter future.
  • Intentionality: We are dedicated to excellence and personalization in every aspect of our endeavors.
