Children’s Home Society of NC

At Children's Home Society we believe in the right of every child to a permanent, safe, and loving family. Over the last several years, there has been a great need for more loving and supportive foster families. Recently, there's been a growing need for families who can support LGBTQIA+ youth, especially trans/nonbinary youth, within the child welfare system. Please contact Cassandra Rising, Family Recruitment Specialist, at 828-231-2353 or crising@chsnc.org, to learn more about how you can make a difference in the lives of LGBTQIA+ youth in foster care in your community.


About CHS


Children’s Home Society has been serving children and families for more than a century, with programs built on our mission to promote the right of every child to a permanent, safe, and loving family. Founded in 1902, CHS has placed more than 16,000 children into loving, adoptive homes. While CHS is perhaps best known for our work related to foster care and adoption, we are much more than a placement agency. Through our parent and teen education programs and professional training, we promote healthy environments to thousands of families.


Through our programs, CHS serves well over 20,000 clients each year, with a statewide staff and offices in 10 cities across North Carolina.  In Western NC, we have offices in Asheville and Morganton.


There are families across the state that desperately need our care, experience, and unwavering dedication to helping children thrive. Our work is focused on making measurable differences in the lives of our children and families. Throughout our history we have provided our children with environments of stability, security, and love. For the next 100 years to come, CHS will remain committed to this purpose.
