One of the best ways to support children and their families who are staying at our House is to organize a community fundraiser to benefit RMHC of the Carolinas. We count on members of the community to raise money throughout the year to supplement the funds raised directly by RMHCC.
Fundraisers planned by community groups, schools and businesses are a vital source of funds for the House and help us continue to provide services that families need. We appreciate your support! Read more here.
We recently received a $2,000 grant from Wells Fargo. The grant will help support our mission of providing a unique home setting that provides a home for families and their children during a very unpredictable time in their lives. Read more here!

Dana Perry and David Jennings have been through a lot the past few months. Their son, Eastin Perry (pictured above), was born 3 months early—his weight when he was born: 15 ounces.
From Clinton, SC Dana went to her regular doctor for her glucose test. The results came back with protein in her urine. Because of this, she was sent to the hospital where she had an ultrasound that indicated all her amniotic fluid, the fluid that surrounds the fetus, was gone.
Immediately she was transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital. There she learned she had severe preeclampsia. She was then told she would have her baby in just a few days.

Jennings’ story meeting baby Eastin and hear about their stay at the Ronald

John and Mary Cronin are assets to often go the extra mile as a volunteer by working extra shifts when needed. This is a tremendous help to the staff! Their goal is to assist our families by showing love and support during difficult times.
Mary is a former RN and was drawn to the Family Room at the hospital. She is an empathic listener to pediatric families who visit the room and are facing a health crisis.
John is a CPA and teaches part time at USC Upstate so office work at the house is more his genre’. He assists in the office by answering the door, phone and extra projects as needed.
