Boys Home Of The South Announces New Exec. Director

Posted: Updated:
BELTON, S.C. -

The Boys Home of the South announced plans to reorganize and expand care under the leadership of a new CEO.

In a press release from the Boys Home, Al Squire was elected by the board on May 3rd.  He was the former co-chair of the Boys Home's Board of Trustees.

The facility, which provides care for abused and neglected youth, says they will begin a restructuring process over the next 18 to 24 months.

Among the needs the home looks to address: reactive attachment disorder and specialized care for youth, supporting the needs of Upstate youth in the custody of the Department of Social Services and those youth entering care through expanded partnerships with area non-profits and outreach organizations.

They say the new programs to be implemented are modeled after Chaddock, a group home based in Illinois. The home has established an agreement with the Boys Home to provide training, referrals and childcare support.

The facility in Belton was established by Charles Aiken in 1958 as a home for orphaned children.

Since its founding, the Boys Home of the South has provided over 10,000 abused, neglected and abandoned young men support, education and help in building boys into men.
