Family Connection News!


Family Connection of South Carolina hosted its first 5K in Columbia on Saturday, September 24 at Saluda Shoals Park.

It was a great first effort, promoting inclusion and active lifestyles for everyone. Enjoy scenes from the event by clicking here.

There's still time to join the Anderson event on Saturday, October 8 at the Anderson Sports & Entertainment Center.

Thanks to Ainsley's Angels, those who cannot complete a 5K on their own, can now experience the thrill of crossing the finish line, promoting active lifestyles for everyone. See the impact firsthand here.

Interested in Getting Involved?

We're looking for individuals to serve on our Parent & Youth Advisory Council (PYAC).

The Council will be a collaborative effort for parents of children/youth with disabilities (ages 0-26) AND young adults (ages 18-26) with any type of disability. The goal is to provide perspective and suggestions on training, education, issues, policies, and more related to the  disability population and activities geared towards this population across South Carolina.
