Founded in 1988, Family Care Center of Catawba Valley, Inc. serves homeless families with dependent children through an emergency residential program.
We offer physical, emotional, social, and educational services to assist families in the transition to becoming self-sufficient. The Center, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, ministers to all persons without discrimination.
We have grown from two rooms in one building serving six families a year to 19 housing units in the Catawba Valley serving approximately 70 families with over 100 children per year. These families are exchanging an unstable, often hostile environment for a safe and secure home. Even with this growth, we turn away about one-half of our applicants, largely due to lack of space.
