I want to support Foster Parents

Foster parents need all the support they can get. Would you consider supporting a foster family in one or more of the ways listed below?

Foster Parent Licensing Package

Crossnore School & Children’s Home offers FREE pre-service training to foster parents who want to become licensed foster homes. That means the cost of this training is paid for by donations. Pre-service training costs $200, which covers all materials and licensing expenses for one family.

If you are unable to foster a child yourself, what other ways can you help?

  • Mow the yard for a foster family
  • Offer free haircuts, if you’re a stylist, or purchase gift certificates for haircuts
  • Wash a foster parents car or take it for an oil change
  • Donate tickets to the zoo, the movies, or other family event

What skills do you have that could help one or more foster families?

  • Hair stylist
  • Art teacher
  • HVAC service
  • Home repair/improvement projects
  • Music lessons
  • Tutoring
  • Tax preparation for students in foster care and for foster families

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.
