Bridging Families© believes children belong with their families. We help birth parents and their children nurture and grow their family relationships while children are placed in our care.

As part of Bridging Families©, children in care receive professional mental health services, medical services, case management, educational assistance, recreational opportunities, and a strong support network. Birth Parents receive an organized structure for collaboration with Bridge Parents, parenting skills curriculum and coaching, psychoeducation on trauma, nurturing relationships with team members, and service access assistance. The family will enjoy enhanced family time in a natural environment and therapy.

Bridge Parents are trained in trauma-informed care and bridge the gap by caring for children in a Crossnore home. Additionally, the Bridging Families© team walks alongside families during the reunification process. As part of the team, birth parents participate in planning and decision-making all along the way.

Enjoy a cup of coffee and breakfast or lunch at Miracle Grounds Coffee Shop & Cafe, located in Crossnore, NC.

Requirements to become a foster parent

The state requires that foster parents get licensed through their local Department of Social Services or a licensed private agency. These sources will be your best form of support. Through them, you'll receive training and have a point of contact for emergencies.

If you ever have questions, reach out to your case manager. They're trained to assist foster families and the children in their care.

The Foster Family Alliance of North Carolina is a statewide association that recruits new parents, provides training, and offers support. You can find training and webinars online. You can also read parenting tips, find your region, and more.

The National Foster Parent Association is a non-profit that provides training and education. Caregivers can also find free online training through the NFPA.

The NC Division of Social Services (NC DSS) is the agency in charge of overseeing the state's child welfare system. NC Kids assists new foster parents with the early stages of the process. You can find children awaiting adoption and access foster care and adoption support services.

It also helps to form connections with other foster families, especially those with years of experience. You may have questions or need advice from them. It can make you feel like you have someone on your side through your journey.

I will say this Crossnore has changed when i was there me and my sister were wrongfully placed by social services at the time i hated every second of it (do to being wrongfully placed) but let me finish we got there it was exactly what I didn't expect so we got settled in it was the night of the birdcage around Christmas time it was gradual but i started warming up to people i went my way my sister went hers we were put in carolina cottage what are now staff apartments it was also dar but when we arrived dar was closed opened three weeks to a month later i met some really great people some of which are gone too soon i will always remember i had a pretty awesome roommate i still remember those purple and yellow shoes he wore and the charisma he had around him all in all the people i met changed my perception of crossnore mainly Devon rest easy homie
