The annual Falcons Children’s Home Party was hosted on Thursday at Eutaw Round About Skating Rink. There were over 600 individuals in attendance and 140 kids.
Children were given gifts, the opportunity to skate and hang out with some local mascots!
Falcon Children’s Home has been providing a home for children for over one hundred years. Established in 1909 it has been estimated that approximately ten thousand lives have been either directly or indirectly touched by the various programs and ministries offered by Falcon Children’s Home. We are a fully accredited home that is licensed by the State of North Carolina. Our campus consists of twelve cottages and many other buildings such as a gym, pool and cafeteria that assist us in providing care for our students. The campus is located in northern Cumberland County in the small town of Falcon. We are presently licensed to serve 109 students.
Throughout its decades of serving students, the Home has had to adjust and adapt its programs to ensure we are effectively meeting the ever changing needs of the populations we serve. That has never been more evident. We have improved and enhanced our Transitional Living Program, launched a Teen Mothers and Babies Program, and successfully merged with the Royal Home Ministries, a residential maternity home, and A New Life Christian Adoption Agency. In 2011 we started 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 Home. Exciting things are occurring at Falcon Children’s Home and Family Services, and it is our goal to continue to look for and develop new initiatives that will allow us reach and serve even more children in need. 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 will 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 making a difference.
