About Us

Founded in 1913 by Drs. Eustace and Mary Martin Sloop, The Crossnore School, first created as a boarding school for disadvantaged mountain children to live and learn, continues today to serve children in need from North Carolina. Children live, learn, and prosper in a loving home environment.

Similarly, The Children’s Home, founded in 1909, has served thousands of children throughout its history, first as an orphanage, and today serving children in need in residential group foster care, as well as community-based services.

On January 1, 2017, the two organizations merged into Crossnore School & Children’s Home for the sole purpose of serving more children in western North Carolina. We offer group residential foster care in homes on both campuses, community-based foster care and adoption services, outpatient therapy services, and educational services.

Crossnore School & Children’s Home has always been known as a place where lives are transformed and hope is restored. Here, we believe in miracles!

Our goal is to become the premier provider of children’s services in western North Carolina. -Brett Loftis, CEO
