Referrals are accepted from all one hundred counties in North Carolina. Court services and mental health referrals are accepted as long as the child is in custody of the Department of Social Services. An initial intake form will be completed at the time of referral. A state application and various records will be requested prior to the admission. The program social worker will arrange the admission after the child is accepted to the program.

Residential care is concerned with the provision of a substitute family for a planned period. The children are typically from homes where the parents cannot meet their needs or children who have had multiple placements in foster homes or other group living programs.
The purpose of our program is to provide early adolescents with the skills that they need to be successful in their lives.
Residential services operates under the C.A.R.E. model, which is a trauma-informed program model.
