Oasis of Hope
Because every child deserves a home.
Oasis of Hope is the only statewide non-therapeutic foster care licensing agency. We are committed to helping children in foster care find the homes that will help them heal and grow, all while reinforcing their self-worth and importance.
Oasis of Hope’s clinic is open to ALL foster families in South Carolina! We offer Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapies and take all forms of South Carolina Medicaid. See our clinic page for more details.
