In 1925, Harriet Parish Smith founded the Upstate Baptist Home for Children after experiencing personal tragedy with a child she and her husband adopted. The home, founded on a working farm, served orphaned children, and with tremendous love, many were successfully placed in new homes. By the 1960s, the board of directors changed the home’s mission to serve children with disabilities — continuing a tradition of making the difference in children’s lives.
