Local Community Hosts Picnic

Posted by: swright 2 months, 1 week ago

On April 27th over 30 volunteers from St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Southpointe and Dry Creek came to the Estates and provided a day of Fun and Fellowship!  All the families enjoyed games for all ages including kickball, face painting, three legged race, sack race, balloon toss, and a hula hoop contests.  We all shared a wonderful meal provided by our volunteers and continued to play throughout the afternoon.  These generous friends have also come to the Foster Community to teach cooking classes; provide games and holiday cheer; and donated school supplies. Their graciousness is much appreciated and we are fortunate to have such a wonderful group of volunteers!

Southmountain Children and Family Services Expands Services across North Carolina

Posted by: swright 3 months, 1 week ago

Southmountain Children and Family Services would like to announce the opening of four new Children’s Advocacy Centers in North Carolina, bringing these important services to communities across the state.  The Transylvania County Children’s Advocacy Center in Western North Carolina is now open and in Eastern North Carolina, three centers have recently opened, including the Moore County Children’s Advocacy Center, the Harnett County Children’s Advocacy Center, and the N/E/W Children’s Advocacy Center that will serve Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson Counties.  All four of these Centers are now providing services to child victims and their families.   Southmountain staff have been very busy with the many tasks and preparations involved in opening the CACs including hiring and training new staff; training Multi-Disciplinary Teams; and locating and preparing buildings to become suitable as Children’s Advocacy Centers.   All of these communities are very excited to have these critical services available in their counties! With the addition of these new centers, Southmountain Children and Family Services is now operating eight CACs serving 12 counties across North Carolina.
