920. Victory Village USA
When it was clear that Freedom Village – entry 276 – became difficult to manage due to the interest the authorities in New York took forward the facility, the management decided to close it down and look for a place where legislation was more relaxed and basically took little interest in the living conditions of the children confined to the facility.
The management believed that the state of South Carolina would be a safe haven for a facility where it was in the interest of the owners not to have supervision from state officials into how the facility was run and the result became that Victory Village established themselves in South Carolina.
Given the way they have managed the old facility, it did not take long before the local authorities had to concern themselves with the strange way the facility was run.
As for the children placed at the facility it can safe to say that it cannot be fun to be there.
