At our club meeting, June 21, Gary Greene, Senior Director Development, Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina was our guest speaker.
Gary is great ambassador for the Homes. Among the many strong points of Boys and Girls Homes he discussed was the Charter School on campus. This year there were 19 graduating students, 9 of which are students of the homes. This balance between the community and the BGHS helps to get the environment on campus typical.
With 52 students on campus, over 175 in foster homes, plus those enrolled in school, off campus over 300 are directly connected to Boys and Girls Homes.
The average stay on campus is 18 months. Over 50% of those coming to the Homes are reunited with their families. That is one of the goals while at the same time safe accepting environment during the process.
