Residential Services

Residential Services

Crossnore School & Children’s Home admits residential children through the Department of Social Services, the Department of Juvenile Justice, or through private family placements.

Residential Services
Children who come to live at Crossnore School & Children’s Home live in one of 20 campus cottages with live-in cottage parents. Cottage parents serve in a 7 day on / 7 day off rotation. This relationship model allows our children learn to build healthy relationships, while receiving the support they need to make progress towards reaching their own goals.

Department of Social Services
If you are with the Department of Social Services and are interested in placing a child with Crossnore School & Children’s Home, please complete the application to the right.

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. If you are interested in placing a child with us and have utilized other resources, such as your local Department of Social Services agency, intensive in-home services or counseling, but are in need of further assistance, please fill out the application to the right. Once this application is received, the Admissions Specialist will contact the legal custodian about a possible interview.

Miracle Scholars
Miracle Scholars are young adults, aged 18-21, who have experienced foster care and graduated from high school. They enroll in a local educational institution to work on a certificate, Associate’s, or Bachelor’s degree, while living in a cottage on our Avery or Winston-Salem campuses. These students receive support to meet their educational goals, stabilize their transportation and employment, and enjoy support from Crossnore staff in a less restrictive environment than students who are still in high school. To apply for Miracle Scholars, please complete the application to the right or contact our Referrals and Admissions Specialist.

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.
