Community Spotlight – Foundation for Abused and Neglected Children of York County

The Foundation for Abused and Neglected Children of York County (FANCY) supports the needs of abused and neglected children in the court systems of York County and the court-appointed volunteers who are their guardian ad litems. The guardians are court appointed to protect the interests of minors or imcompetent in a particular matter. They are the voice of the children.
FANCY raises money to fund educational, extracurricular and learning opportunities for the abused and neglected children in the York County Family Court system. The group provides food, toiletries and financial assitance for families in crisis who are unable to get help from other sources in a timely manner.
The non-profit group provides volunteers the necessary training and/or assistance needed to represent the children. Viva Halcom of Tega Cay became a volunteer guardian ad litem five years ago and serves as the President of the Foundation. “During the holidays, FANCY often receives requests from the Department of Social Service  for gifts for children in Intensive Foster Treatment homes and other facilities. With the help of financial donors, we can help these children.
We can also provided a list of gift items if a donor would like  to shop for gifts for the children,” said Halcom. Credit Card donations, checks and other donations are welcome to help the children. For more information at  or by communityspotlight_fancycontacting Viva Halcom 704-507-6252.
