Four service care providers will donate more than $1 million to help foster care families in North Carolina.

Money from Trillium has been donated to 28 counties in North Carolina. It will be used to train foster-care families, giving them an opportunity to better support their children.

Locally, it affects the Boys & Girls Home of North Carolina, which will receive $89,151 to dole out to Columbus, Brunswick, and Bladen counties.

  • Children’s Home Society is expected to deliver $280,000 to: Gates, Bertie, Chowan, Perquimans, Pasquotank, Currituck, and Camden
  • Omni Visions is expected to deliver $237,000 to the following counties: Pamlico, Martin, Nash, Hertford, Northampton, Washington, Halifax, Dare, Tyrell, and Hyde
  • Easterseals UCP is expected to deliver $450,000 to the following counties: Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Jones, Onslow, Pender, Pitt, and New Hanover counties

The funding will cover the cost of local staff positions across the northern, southern, and central regions, with additional staff dedicated to recruit and develop new families.

The providers will contribute professional parenting, kinship care, therapeutic care, Intensive Family Treatment (IAFT), and Alternative Family Living for both children and adults. 

Trillium announced October 1, 2023 as the official start date for its tailored plan. Services will remain the same until then.
