The HEART of Crossnore: The Work We Do
For more than 100 years, Crossnore has existed as a place to serve and love children. While our name, mission, and locations have grown and expanded over the years, the heart of the work has remained the same. We are committed to caring for North Carolina’s most vulnerable members – its children. The Crossnore School was initially founded on our Avery campus in 1913. Likewise, The Children’s Home was founded on our Winston-Salem campus in 1909. Together, these two campuses and staff merged in 2017, to become Crossnore School & Children’s Home. More recently, in 2021, our mission and heart were reestablished to become Crossnore Communities for Children. This new name better encompasses all of the many services that Crossnore offers. We are much more than just a residential campus for children. We are grateful for the updated language to match our refocused vision.
