Miracle Hill is a Christian ministry that has been providing food, shelter, clothing, addiction recovery, and hope to Upstate families and individuals in need for over 81 years. State and national leaders have praised Miracle Hill for its compassionate care to everyone in our community.
In response to a request from South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, on January 23, 2019 the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a waiver allowing Miracle Hill Foster Care to maintain its religious beliefs and still be licensed and funded to recruit foster parents for the state’s foster children. The decision to grant the waiver allows Miracle Hill to continue to be a part of the solution to South Carolina’s foster care crisis. More than 4000 children are in foster care, and the state needs more than 1,000 new foster homes to adequately meet the demand. Foster parents who partner with Miracle Hill believe in our mission, are motivated by their faith, and desire to be supported by an organization that shares their faith. We are deeply grateful for other faith groups that have supported us in this struggle for religious freedom, including The Catholic Diocese of Charleston and the Coalition for Jewish Values.
