TOGETHER, LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE
There will come a time in a child’s life that they will encounter moments of growth and times of transition. These times are best navigated with the encouragement and understanding of someone they can trust and can provide support and guidance. More than anything, they need consistent, reinforced positive counsel and support. However, for a child without a solid support system, this need is magnified. They could be burdened with poverty, abuse, single-parent household, or other debilitating family circumstances. These could easily be some of the children that we embrace within the programs we have established. Without the benefit of a mentor or positive adult role models, these same children may end up perpetuating the same life and issues as they transition into their adult lives. These are the lives that Lowcountry Youth Services help change-but only with the financial support of people like you.
As it is with many organizations, demand outweighs resources. The power of your donation can make a difference in the life of a young person. Lowcountry South services is funded solely by organizations and individuals like yourself, who believe that the things we do for young people in the community are not only needed but also beneficial. Your pledge provides us with the funds to expand and reach more children throughout the charleston area. Your gift will assist with making the difference to increase the chances of success and defying the odds by achieving a high school or college diploma instead of a criminal record. We want to thank you in advance for considering donating to our program-- regardless of the donation size. Your contribution will continue to help us as we focus on the character, leadership, and social development of our children.
If you prefer to not pay with a credit/debit card, feel free to mail us your contribution.

DGC has helped my son with manners, helping maintain personal hygiene, starting to think about the future of what he wants to do, helped him learn time management skills & most importantly become the young man he is today.
We realized that raising 2 sons in today's world was more than we could handle on our own. When we heard about The Distinguished Gentlemen's Club, we knew this would be a great opportunity to have some Positive Male Role Models for our sons and to have these Mentors come alongside us in giving our son's the guidance they need to have a bright future.
I have had the privilege of witnessing the positive change Perry and his programs have made, and continue to make in the lives of our young people. I cannot count the number of stories my wife ( a retired Berkeley County School teacher) and daughters (current Berkeley County School teachers) relayed to me about the changes they witnessed in what were troubled young men after they became involved with Officer Perry
Since Joshua has been in DGC, we have seen a tremendous change in him. He thinks before acting. He takes pride in his grades and his appearance. His grades have gone from failing to As and Bs.
Ricardo Perry enthusiasm and tireless commitment to improving the lives of our young men speaks volumes.
Ricardo Perry has been more than just a mentor and role model. He is a constant stable figure that we all look forward to in life. He is the driving force behind most good decisions that we make. Without him there would be no foundation or backbone for the organization to grow from.
I enrolled my son in DGC for him to meet people, build his self-esteem & his confidence. I also wanted my son to have male role models where he could learn how to grow and become a man of greatness in the future.
It’s a great pleasure the joy my son receives having a mentor he can talk to about anything and enjoys spending all day with. Without this group and the great mentor he has, all I can say is, I'm grateful. DGC was just what my son needed.
“Lowcountry Youth Services is a difference-maker because they use their talents and skills to not only directly serve an area of great importance but inspire others to do so as well. Lowcountry Youth Services sees in young people what in many cases they do not see themselves; talent, skills, value, and an amazing hope and enthusiasm for their future.”
I enrolled my son so he can be around positive kids. Kids whose parents want a grounded village for their child to be a part of. I enrolled him so he can see what black male excellence can do.
Lowcountry Youth Services is an incredible asset to the City of Hanahan through its work with youth services through their police department. We are fortunate that they have now expanded his reach through the Exchange Program by providing additional mentoring and support services to young males with involvement in the juvenile justice system in Berkeley County.
