Local non-profit addressing need for foster parents in the East
By: Ariana Craft WASHINGTON, N.C. (WNCT) – There’s a large need for foster parents in the East. A local group is raising money to help foster children and find new parents to care for them.
Alexis and Josh Kelly set-up “The Kelly Children’s Home”, a non-profit group.
To feel a deep, heartfelt connection to a cause to help people is one of the more special moments in the human experience. Being inspired by the passion of others for the greater good is really what life is all about. This past week, our entire Outreach Team at WIMCO was moved to the point of tears hearing Alexis Kelly pour out the heart behind the Kelly Children’s Home, a new children’s home coming to Beaufort County that will change the trajectory of the lives of so many children in our community.

The effort to build a children’s home is being spearheaded by Alexis Kelly, a Beaufort County native who recently returned to her roots with husband Josh, after several years in the Raleigh area. The children’s home was registered as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 2016.
A STEP FORWARD: Kelly Children’s Home founder Alexis Kelly, alongside her husband Josh Kelly, signs the paperwork to ofcially purchase the former Word of Life Worship Center at 300 E. 10th St. in Washington. Once renovations are completed at the location next spring, the home will be able to accommodate as many as 35-40 local children in foster care, depending on licensing requirements and lingering COVID-19 restrictions.
