 The "Official Site" for "Jenkins Orphanage"


Our MISSION is to promote and support the social and economic well being of children, families, and individuals to enable them to become productive and self-sufficient persons in their communities.

Our VISION for Jenkins Institute is to "Rekindle the Jenkins Dream - to Reform and Improve the Lives of Children and Families!"

Jenkins Institute, previously known as Jenkins Orphanage was founded, December 16, 1891 by Reverend Daniel Joseph Jenkins. In July of 1892 it was chartered by the State of South Carolina with the mission of providing a safe, secure, loving home environment for orphans and destitute boys and girls in need.  We currently care for teenage girls ages 11 up to 21 years of age.
