Building toward the future

Every July our Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina Board of Trustees gathers for our annual meeting.

While this year’s gathering was virtual, our Trustees still received reports from across the organization sharing the accomplishments and achievements we have experienced. Among the special items we have the privilege of reporting on this year were C.R.E.A.T.E. Hope, Carolyn’s Kaleidoscope Child Advocacy Center, and Success Coach. These programs represent the extension of services beyond our traditional programs to provide even better care to vulnerable children and families in our community.

Another special part of this annual meeting was the recognition of the service of those trustees who are rotating off the board or moving from positions of leadership. We also welcomed those moving into positions of leadership and those joining the board for the first time.

This year we welcomed David Wyatt into the Chairperson position. A retired senior vice president for First Citizens Bank, David has served as a member of our Board since 2009. He has served on numerous committees and spent the past two years as the Chair of the Board’s Executive Committee. His devotion to the children we serve is unmatched. I am excited to see where he takes B&GH into the future.


David takes over the top leadership role from Ken Bland of Garner, NC. Ken has an amazing heart for children. Ken has done an amazing job leading the organization over the past two years and will continue his support for the next two years in his new role as past chair of the board.


We would not be the organization we are today if not for the guidance the Board of Trustees has provided throughout our history. I am grateful to each and every person who has served on this leadership board over the years and who will serve going forward. We would not be who we are, serving vulnerable children and making their futures brighter, without you.


Gary Faircloth is the President and CEO for Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina.
