Teens are the most challenging population to place in traditional foster care settings. Teens are at risk for never learning the necessary life skills, experiencing emotional healing, or growing the self-confidence to become successful young adults.
The Kelly Children's Home will provide residential care to teens and those aging out of foster care, as well as the necessary services to prepare them for the next chapter in life!
Alexis & Josh Kelly adopted a child from foster care in 2016, and during that time learned of the significant need for foster parents in North Carolina. They felt led to open a children's group home to those in need. Alexis & Josh spent the next few years bringing their vision to life and purchased a property in 2020.
In 2021, renovations are underway & we hope to be open soon!
