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.
