Delaine understands how it feels to have an unplanned pregnancy, and she uses her story to inspire others now at FCC. “I am so thankful that I didn’t choose to abort my child and for the saving grace and mercy of God. He rescued me from myself and once I found my identity in Him, life began to make sense. Jesus transformed my heart and can do that for anyone.”

Susan got into this work from her own experiences with unplanned pregnancy & abortion. She says “I also want to help women make decisions not based on fear and worry but with true knowledge about abortion and how that decision has lasting affects on a persons life afterwards.” She wants “to see families be restored, men and women to see their value as God sees them, & for babies not only be saved, but born into God filled homes.”

Client Care Coordinator 2021 – present, Intern 2019
I live in Easley with my wonderful husband Brennan. I graduated from Southern Wesleyan University in 2020, with a degree in Psychology, concentrating in human services & counseling, with a minor in history. I am passionate about helping women find their value and confidence in Christ, not by the world’s standards.
I started out at FCC as an intern in 2019. FCC is a place like no other, and it is such fulfilling work! When my internship ended, I could not stop thinking about it… fast forward to August 2021… through a series of events that only God could have orchestrated, I am now on staff and working my dream job!
People should come to Foothills Care Center because they will find a listening ear, an open heart, and people that genuinely care for them. The people here desire to serve and love on every woman who comes through our doors.
Community Outreach Director 2021-present
Jennifer is our new director of community outreach! She and her husband Pastor Chris have been community supporters of FCC for around 8 years. They have been in ministry for ten years and have been serving at Corinth Baptist Westminster for 6 of those. Jen was born and raised in Seneca, SC, but she and her husband spent time in Louisville, Kentucky for seminary. She and Chris have four sons together. Jen graduated from TriCounty Technical College & has worked in teaching & ministry throughout her life.
When asked what she hopes for for the women and families who come to FCC, Jen says: “I hope that each one who enters our building sees that Jesus loves them right where they are. I hope they know that they are no longer alone in their situation, but that they have a new family here who is willing to get in the mess with them and help them to see more clearly how God is working even there.”
Jail & Homeless Ministry Coordinator
Beverly has been on staff at FCC for about 9 months, but she has been involved for more than 5 years. She became involved with FCC through their jail ministry while she was working as an officer at the Oconee County Detention Center. Along with other members of staff, she visits the jails & the homeless community on the Seneca “mill hill” every single week. Bev’s infectious laughter, positivity & love for Jesus & other people makes her a bright light everywhere she goes.
She has lived in Oconee County her whole life. She is married and has 2 children. To Beverly, “people should come to FCC because they will meet people who love Jesus and love people right where they are.” This is the cornerstone of Beverly’s interactions with women at the detention center & on the mill hill, & her heart is to make others feel & know the love of Christ no matter where they are or what they have done.
