Who Comes to Tara Hall?

Neglected, troubled or abused boys – ages 6 years and up – growing up in the state of South Carolina without a supportive or safe home environment. These boys have no other options to help them develop into contributing citizens. Originally, Tara Hall was a place for neglected boys due to poverty. Today, boys arrive from ALL WALKS OF LIFE for complex and even more devastating reasons, including:

Physical Abuse
Sexual Abuse
Physical Neglect

Medical Neglect
Academic Problems
Behavioral Issues in School

Exposure to Criminal Activity
Drug/Alcohol Abuse by
Disrupted Adoption Scenarios

What Happens at Tara Hall?

It begins with someone noticing something is wrong, and making a call… a friend, teacher, doctor, neighbor or family member, anyone.

Tara Hall takes each boy just as he is a-child with a unique history and individual needs. We teach him to replace bad habits with good and help him make good decisions. Tara Hall gets to know each family and meets them where they are as well, with the intent to work with them and help them help their child moving forward.

Why Tara Hall?

Tara Hall is first and foremost a safe place you can trust. Established in 1969, more than 600 boys have passed through its doors. The unique structure, time-tested approach and on-campus school set Tara Hall apart from other group homes. With each passing year, the future for so many young people grows dim as they struggle to develop in an uncaring and even dangerous environment. Today, issues faced by children are more complex and more difficult to navigate than ever and the list of options grows shorter.

This certification came through hard work, commitment to these standards and the community, and a daily effort to make an impact through performance on every level.

Every boy deserves to be the king of his own life

Not a statistic or a product of unsafe, unsupportive circumstances beyond his control.
And every king needs the support of his court…
