Media Fact Sheet
Crossnore School & Children’s Home grows healthy futures for children and families by providing a Christian sanctuary of hope and healing.
We have three locations: 86 acres in the quaint Blue Ridge Mountain town of Crossnore, NC founded in 1913 by Drs. Eustace and Mary Martin Sloop, 212 rolling acres on the edge of downtown Winston-Salem, NC founded in 1909 by the Western Conference, United Methodist Church, and an office in the historic district of downtown Hendersonville, NC opened in 2018.
We meet our mission in four service areas: Residential Services, Foster Care & Adoptions, Clinical Services, and the Center for Trauma Resilient Communities. Residential Services are offered to children who are not able to live safely in their own homes and who are in the custody of the Department of Social Services. Our 20 cottages, spread across two campuses, allow these children to remain with their siblings while in foster care. Our cottages are staffed by trained, professional cottage parents who serve in a 7-day-on/7-day-off rotation. This relationship model helps our children learn to build healthy relationships, while receiving the support they need to make progress towards reaching their own goals. Our Youth in Transition program helps provide life skills and independent living training for youth beginning at age 14. Follow-up services include assistance with stable housing, transportation, education, and work. These services are available for participants through the age of 26 to offer support for a successful transition into adulthood.
Our Foster Care & Adoptions program trains foster families to receive their foster care license from the state of North Carolina. After licensure, we provide placement of children, supervision of families, and on-going training in the form of a monthly support group for foster families. When a child’s plan of care changes to adoption, their current foster family may have the opportunity to become a forever home for that child.
Clinical Services are offered to children and families at all of our locations following a complete assessment to determine their needs. This assessment then drives the services that will best meet those needs. Clinical services are available through both outpatient and school-based therapy programs. A specialized clinical service, Day Treatment, is offered through Kingswood School, a Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school that meets on our Winston-Salem campus. Day Treatment utilizes a structured environment concentrating on strengths, skill building, and problem solving through individual therapy and in groups.
The Center for Trauma Resilient Communities was established in 2018 to offer training in trauma-informed care and building trauma resiliency. Businesses, schools, neighborhoods, families, churches, and organizations will benefit from trauma-informed care training. The Center for Trauma Resilient Communities offers customized training to meet the needs of your group, team, or organization. These sessions range from half-day workshops in the basics of trauma-informed care to three-day intensives that delve deeper into how you can effectively respond to those who have experienced trauma.
