What Should I Do If I Have Concerns About My Child?

It’s very important to us that you feel comfortable with your child’s placement at Generations.  If for any reason you have concerns about his safety, care, or wellbeing, we urge you to notify us immediately.  Please start by contacting your child’s assigned Care Coordinator or Therapist, who is identified to you at the time of admission.  If you are unable to do so for any reason, please contact one of our Program Directors:  Aimee Clark (864-243-5557, ext. 212) or Shannon Paradise (864-243-5557, ext. 270).

What Is Aftercare

Residents who complete the program at Generations typically receive 90 days of in-home services following his discharge, provided by an qualified Aftercare Coordinator.  The purpose of these community-based services is to assist with his transition back into the community, continue with family therapy services, and further assist with the reunification process, when needed.  By bridging the gap between out-of-home placement and his return to the community, we help improve each child’s chance for success.
