Chefalos for Crossnore Update!

Last July, we posted a blog about the Chefalo family (read the post HERE) who were planning their holiday trip to scale Mount Kilimanjaro. Using this opportunity to raise awareness for foster care and funds for Crossnore, the Chefalos spent months planning and preparing.

We are grateful to say that their trip was a success! The Chefalos, their guides, and porters made it to the top and took this photo with a Crossnore flag! Additionally, your gifts amounted to $2,669 that will be put to immediate use serving Crossnore children.

Shenandoah says, “After 6 grueling days of the most physical work I’ve ever done we made it because of our amazing team. I have accomplished the biggest physical feat I’ve ever attempted. Not a bad way to start the year. Now that I have proven anything’s possible…tackling the child welfare system seems easy! It’s time.”

Be inspired by these amazing photos. Be inspired to action and hope and change. It’s time.

Racism is Trauma

Crossnore School & Children’s Home exists to be a sanctuary for children and their families and racism destroys sanctuary. Racism is trauma and is part of systemic community trauma that has long term negative impacts on people and communities of color. Crossnore believes that black lives matter, and we are committed to building an anti-racist organization and supporting the development of racial equity in our communities.
