Family and Youth Networks

Youth Networks

Our Youth Move South Carolina networks are networks of youth coming together over similar experiences in a safe environment. Our networks are also peer-run meaning the youth are similar in ages and are able to relate and support each other.

Family Networks

The Federation of Families of SC assists parents of children with emotional, behavioral, mental health and/or substance use disorders establish community parent networks.
