Turbeville Children’s Home’s property was purchased by the IPHC on October 7, 2015, and received license to operate by the state of SC in January of 2016. The home was previously opened October 8, 1949, by the South Carolina State Association of Free Will Baptists and was known as the Free Will Baptist Orphanage. Over time the name of the home changed to The Free Will Baptists Home for Children. The facility was open until February 2013 where it served hundreds of children. The official opening of the Turbeville Campus was scheduled for March 1, 2016, however, due to a need for a sibling group of four needing placement, the first children were received February 23, 2016. Another sibling group of four was placed the very next day. Within the first five years of operation, Turbeville Children’s Home has cared for over 250 children between the ages of 7 to 20 from all of the 46 counties across South Carolina.
Turbeville Children's Home is located on 10-acres of land with 3 different dorms that can house up to 32 students. On our campus we have a pool, basketball court, sand volleyball, bicycles and other recreational activities. TCH meets all state and accreditation standards and the children on campus attend a local school.
Turbeville Children's Home is a child care facility. We have no other purpose or business. The care of children is our foremost concern and the centerpiece of all that we do. We seek to provide services and opportunities that will enhance the well being of every child - mentally, emotionally, and spiritual

The Transitional Living Program is designed students aged 18-21. We are essentially the bridge from childhood to adulthood so they can be prepared for when they leave us at 21.
