Volunteer

Volunteering on Crossnore School & Children’s Home’s campuses makes a big impact.

Service to this community comes in a variety of difference ways. You could:
  • Utilize a special skill set or talent to teach things like music or art.
  • Develop a relationship with one of our cottages to further enhance cottage living.
  • Support staff by offering your skills in the areas of maintenance or landscaping.

On each of our campuses, our compassionate volunteers log an average of 500-700 volunteer hours per year.

If you are interested in developing a deeper connection with a child, the Visiting Resource program may be for you.

Visiting Resources mentor a child by promoting healthy relationships, supporting the ups and downs that come along with school and college, encouraging healthy decision making, and serving as a support system when a child needs a safe place to turn. Sharing your life and providing a positive role model plays a vital part in the development of our children’s lives.

There is no better example of the power of a volunteer relationship than the story of Glenda and Bob Biggerstaff’s connection to Crossnore School & Children’s Home which you can learn about in the video below.

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.
