WESTCARE NORTH CAROLINA PROGRAMS



WestCare North Carolina Girls Program
WestCare North Carolina Girls Program is a gender responsive residential facility for girls 13-17. This 16-bed program is for girls who are referred by the North Carolina Division of Juvenile Justice Delinquency and Prevention (DJJ), and are classified as Level 2 girls who reside in the state of North Carolina. The average length of stay is 4-6 months. The girls reside in two large homes with walking access to our school and our main administrative building which houses the offices of all our employees. The administrative building also encompasses a dining hall, a secondary classroom, and a place to hold graduation ceremonies, community meetings and trainings.

The main goal is to assist young women in learning the skills and tools needed to successfully re-integrate with their families, and back into their communities. Family support services are also an integral component of the program. The campus provides a wealth of services, strengthening and broadening the behavior and education of the girls participating in the program. Our program incorporates individual service plans that will guide the development of services based on the stories and needs to facilitate social and emotional growth within each adolescent female we serve. WestCare North Carolina also has a Non Public Conventional Academy to meet all of our young women's educational needs during their stay.

The facility also has a Registered Nurse and provides recreational programs and outdoor activities. On site, residents have available to them:
