Babcock Center strives to support and protect each person it serves and to help him or her enjoy a meaningful and independent life. Funding to support each individual and to operate and maintain the facilities is received primarily through contracts from the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs (SCDDSN) and SC Medicaid. Babcock Center is a United Way of the Midlands partner agency and receives allocated funds to support vocational services. However, as many local agencies in our community have experienced budget cuts from the State, funding to non-profit agencies, such as Babcock Center, has also been greatly reduced, causing us to look for other resources within our community to meet the ongoing needs of the agency.
The Babcock Center Foundation, formed in 1988, supports the activities and purposes of Babcock Center through donations and fund-raising events. The primary mission of the Foundation is to meet the needs of the people supported by Babcock Center when no other source of funding is available.
