At the Boys and Girls Homes, we strive to provide the best care possible for our children. In our residential program of care, children are placed in a safe and secure environment that gives them an opportunity to heal and develop. Through community-based services, children are given an opportunity to begin the healing process with a family who cares for them.
The residential program of care places strong emphasis on developing positive relationships, rediscovering academic success and preparing for the challenges of adulthood. Conflict resolution and time management are among the many valuable skills learned during their time at B&GH. Our efforts are focused on building self-esteem, responsibility, and character.
The official social skills development and behavioral management program for our residential services is known as GRACE.
Our 140 acres campus, located in Lake Waccamaw, is home to a working farm, beautiful chapel, and a North Carolina Public Charter School. Youth in the residential program live in cottage style homes with residential counselors who are highly qualified professionals. The cottages are maintained and frequently updated through the generosity of civic clubs.
With panoramic views of the state's largest natural lake, and proximity to the North Carolina State Park, there are endless recreational opportunities.
