Falcon Children's Home and Family Services has been providing a home for children who, for whatever reason are unable to live with their parents in a regular home setting for over one hundred and ten years. Established in 1909, it has been estimated that over fifteen thousand lives have been either directly or indirectly touched by the various programs and services offered by Falcon Children's Home and Family Services.
Throughout its decades of serving children the Home has had to adjust and adapt its programs to ensure that we are effectively meeting the ever changing needs of the populations we serve. That has never been more evident than in this most recent decade. We have improved and enhanced our Transitional Living Program of working with older teens in preparing them for independence. We have successfully merged with a residential maternity home and launched a Teen Mothers and Babies Program. In 2014 we opened a new state of the art campus featuring two bedroom apartments to accommodate the growth of this program. We were excited in 2011 to start our own private school on campus that is focused directly on working with students who are in the foster care system. In 2012 we received our license to begin licensing foster homes under the umbrella of Falcon Children's and Family Services. We ventured outside the state of North Carolina for the first time in 2015 and opened a Children's Home in Turbeville South Carolina. We are presently making plans to create sibling homes on our campus to allow families to stay together. We are also in the process of opening and operating a daycare on campus that will serve our mothers and their babies. It is our goal to continue to look for and develop new initiatives that will allow us to reach and serve even more children than ever before. It is our wish that every child could be raised in a family home setting, but for those who are not able to and are placed with us, we make every effort to provide an environment that will nurture and develop that child to be as successful as possible in life. Falcon Children's Home and Family Services is truly making a difference.
