Abstract
Description
The South Carolina Department of Youth Services, through its Research and Planning Division, surveyed four geographic regions in the state to determine the extent of the runaway problem during 1973. It was found that runaways were more concentrated in the coastal area. Law enforcement and court agencies in Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, and Horry counties had apprehended some 1,178 runaway youth, largely during the summer months. Most were white females, usually 15-16 years of age. The coastal area survey helped to justify establishment of the Charleston Runaway House, which opened late in 1975
