Music for a Cause

Every season, since 2011, the S.C. Phil selects a group of charity partners from the Midlands to help raise awareness for their causes. Each charity is featured at one Masterworks concert during the season. The partner for this concert is Palmetto Place Children's Shelter in Columbia.

About Palmetto Place Children's Shelter

It is our mission to provide a safe and caring environment for children and teens who have faced abuse, abandonment, neglect and/or homelessness.

Palmetto Place was founded in 1977 by the members of the Junior Woman’s Club of Columbia (JWC). In the early 1970s they became aware of the unique needs and tragic stories of abused and neglected children who needed support and created a plan to help. In June 1976, a special meeting of the club was called, and the membership voted unanimously for its new project, Youth Resources. By January 1977, a home was purchased in Columbia, and Palmetto Place Children’s Emergency Shelter was born in April 1977. Since the shelter was founded, more than 7,000 of the Midlands abused, neglected and abandoned children have found a safe, nurturing home at Palmetto Place.
