Official merger of Crossnore School and The Children's Home in Winston-Salem is announced


I am happy to announce the official merger of The Children’s Home in Winston-Salem, NC and The Crossnore School in Crossnore, NC. Our two historic organizations have come together to form Crossnore School & Children’s Home. We are excited about the future as we continue our work of serving children as one organization with two beautiful campuses. This merger allows us to offer a greater continuum of services to western North Carolina children and families on both our campuses as well as in the communities we serve. PROGRAMS AND CAMPUSES MOVING FORWARD Already we are seeing the benefits in our programs and on our campuses. Our residential foster care program is currently home to more than 110 children across both campuses. As new cottages are renovated and licensed, we expect that number to increase to 150 by next summer. Our community-based services are serving another 150 children in single-family foster homes, outpatient therapies, and educational services. Buildings on the Winston-Salem campus are being renovated to provide homes for children and offices for staff. All of our staff continues their training in our Sanctuary Model of Care®. And, our campus businesses are thriving as they provide vital services to our communities, as well as supporting the mission of Crossnore School & Children’s Home.
