The Midlands Foundation for Foster Children is a 501(c)(3) organization consisting solely of volunteers dedicated to helping Richland County foster children. The number of foster children supported by our organization ranges from 300 to 500.

The Midlands Foundation for Foster Children works in partnership with Richland County Department of Social Services (DSS). We raise funds to assist in filling gaps in foster care not provided for by county, state, and federal agencies. Everything we do is aimed at the goal of allowing foster children a new life.
