SC Attorney General Awards Grant to Carolina Youth Development Center



Carolina Youth Development Center (CYDC) has been selected by the Office of South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson to receive more than $363,000 in grant funds to support victims of crime, and women who have experienced violence. 

“It is such an honor for CYDC to be chosen by the Office of the Attorney General as a recipient of  these funds,” said CYDC CEO, Beverly Hardin. “We are committed to serving youth and families in crisis and this funding will allow us to continue to provide programs and support for victims, particularly young women who have experienced violence and abuse.”

The grants are administered through the South Carolina Department of Crime Victim Assistance Grants (DCVAG). The department’s mission is to enhance South Carolina’s capacity to assist crime victims and to provide leadership in the promotion of justice and healing. Through grant funding, victims can receive services including:

  • Victim Advocacy
  • Counseling
  • Residential Shelter
  • Forensic Interviews and Forensic Nurse Examination and
  • Emergency Assistance
“Women and youth may become victims for a variety of reasons, being able to provide access to support and services in their community, can help put them on the path to recovery and leading successful lives,” said CYDC Board Chair Rita Daily.  “Receiving funding support from the Attorney General and the DCVAG helps ensure we are able to open our programs to reach more victims in need of support.”
