Thornwell is seeking new team members to join our growing ministry!

Thornwell is a diverse, non-profit ministry serving children and families across Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina with a family-centered continuum of care.

For more than 145 years, Thornwell has met the call to care for and support children and families in need. Today, the same spirit that guided our Founder to create a home for orphans now provides hope and healing for some of society’s most vulnerable. We believe in a world where everyone belongs to a thriving family, and this belief guides everything we do to heal and build up children and families

Thornwell’s mission to prevent child abuse and neglect, build up and reunite families, and strengthen healthy communities in the name of Jesus Christ is carried out daily by its Board of Trustees and staff. This mission comes to life on Thornwell’s residential foster care and educational campus in Clinton, South Carolina, throughout the Upstate of South Carolina with foster care services, and across Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina where evidence-based programs are offered by Master’s level, licensed therapists who partner with children and families to give them the tools they need to build healthy relationships and strong bonds for the future. Thornwell’s offerings align with State and Federal guidelines and are designed to empower children and families to live their best lives.
