August 2018 Featured Business of the Month ~ Crossnore School & Children’s Home

For more than 100 years, Crossnore School & Children’s Home has provided hope and healing for children who are unable to live safely in their own homes. Crossnore offers a holistic approach to treating the whole child emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Our Theory of Change model is unique to our organization and begins with meeting the most basic need by providing a safe and loving home for children from families in crisis. Within the model, each circle grows bigger to show the expansion of a child’s well-being—mind, body, and spirit.
Crossnore has expanded from Avery County to include a residential campus in Winston-Salem and a satellite office in Hendersonville. Our residential programs include on-campus group homes for children in foster care in Crossnore and Winston-Salem. Our clinical services are offered to our residential children, outpatient therapy clients, and through school-based therapies in all three of our locations. Foster care and adoption services are also available in all three locations and include training for licensure, as well as post-licensure training, support, and supervision.
Another aspect of Crossnore’s continuum of care that is offered is Youth in Transition services. Youth in Transition continues support for young adults who have graduated high school. The program concentrates on helping these young adults stabilize their housing, education, employment, transportation, and other independent living skills.
