WestCare North Carolina Girls Program
WestCare North Carolina is home to the WestCare North Carolina Girls Program, a gender responsive, trauma-informed residential facility for girls 13-17. This 20-bed program is for girls who are referred by the North Carolina Division of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (DJJ), and are classified at a Level 1 or 2 Adjudicated Status. The program utilizes experienced Residential Counselors, Certified Teachers, Qualified Health Care Staff, Licensed Social Workers and Therapists, and a team of professionals to facilitate social, emotional and educational growth within each adolescent female we serve.

During the 4-6 month stay, WCNC staff strive to assist young women in learning the skills and tools needed to successfully re-integrate with their families, and back into their communities through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Informed Care, Life Skills Education, Substance Abuse Education, group and individual therapy, psychiatric services, psychological consultation and recreation. Young women also receive educational services aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study as well as options for credit recovery and a GED program through our onsite WestCare Girls Academy. Family support services are also an integral component of the program. WCNC utilizes video conferencing for court services and families that cannot attend meetings in person.

WestCare North Carolina strives to uplift the young women we serve by empowering them to continue to utilize their strengths and successes to advocate for success in all areas of their lives.
