These children may have been included in the 39 due to economic resources or because they are in foster or kinship care. There are almost 4,000 children in South Carolina in Foster Care. Currently in Calhoun County there is only one foster family. Many children coming into care have to leave not only their parents but also their schools and friends in order to travel outside of the county to find placement.
