Residential Services

Crossnore Communities for Children admits residential children in two ways. The first is through the Department of Social Services and the Department of Juvenile Justice systems. The second type of admission is for Private Placements. Private Placements are children who are currently living with a parent and/or legal custodian and are in need of possible out of home placement.


Foster Care & Adoptions

The mission of Crossnore Communities for Children Foster Care and Adoptions is to license and supervise single family foster homes and therapeutic foster homes. We also partner with the counties we serve to effectively and efficiently recruit for and match children who desire to be adopted with qualified loving families.

Therapy Services

Therapy services are offered to all residential children, following a complete assessment to determine their level of need. This assessment then drives the services that will best meet those needs. An important part of all students’ teams, therapists work with case managers, cottage parents, legal guardians, Guardian Ad Litem, social workers, and other important individuals to provide a cohesive and consistent environment for healing.

Therapy services are also available to members of the community. Referrals are accepted from the local schools or Department of Social Services. Licensed therapists help children and families learn new strategies to address challenges, break ineffective patterns, evaluate difficult decisions and overcome obstacles in order to lead a more fulfilling life together.

Staff therapists are trained in Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Equine Therapy, individual and family counseling, and group therapies.

Youth Independent Living

After care services are important for all of our children who graduate high school in our care. These services include assistance with education, housing, transportation, work, and medical needs.
