Funding Priorities

The Crossnore Promise Scholarship program represents Crossnore’s promise to deliver state-of-the-art services to children and families in western North Carolina. The only way to achieve this is through the financial support of donors like you.

Bridge Scholarships

Bridge Scholarships help “bridge the gap” between what the Department of Social Services pays and the actual cost to house and provide supportive holistic services for our residential students. Bridge Scholarships make possible things like spiritual life, recreation opportunities, and travel.

Examples of Support

  • $18,000 bridges the gap for one residential student for one year.
  • $4,500 supports one child for three months living on one of our two campuses.
  • $1,500 provides funding for one residential child for one month.

Thrive Scholarships

Thrive Scholarships provide support for children who are uninsured or under-insured, but in need of outpatient clinical therapy services. Crossnore therapists are trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, individual and family counseling, as well as group therapy.

Examples of Support

  • $2,500 provides 25 trauma-focused clinical sessions throughout one year for one child.
  • $600 makes six sessions with a licensed therapist possible for a child.
  • $200 makes possible two sessions for a child in need.

Discover Scholarships

Discover Scholarships fund Adventure-Based Counseling (ABC) services for children who are Crossnore clients. ABC is a group counseling program that utilizes experiential learning with engaging activities that help participants develop strong social skills and achieve personal growth. These specialized services are entirely funded through private donations.

Examples of Support

  • $1,000 provides two ABC group sessions for six to 10 children.
  • $500 gives 10 children an opportunity to participate in the high ropes course.
  • $100 supports five children using the climbing wall to build trust and self-confidence.
