Falcon Children’s Home is a private, not-for-profit institution fully licensed by the State of North Carolina to care for up to 90 children between the ages 0 and 21 years. Through various programs and projects, Falcon Children’s Home has worked with the IPHC for over 100 years to provide safe homes for children.
Since its inception this Home has remained committed to the desires of its founders. That vision was, and is, to provide a Christian home for children, who for whatever reason, are not permitted to live with their parents in a normal family setting or whose parents are deceased. We are committed to serving the needs of children without regard to creed, color, race or religion; to providing services and opportunities that will enhance the total well-being of every child – mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually; and to the Christian values upon which the Home was established and which we believe and teach unashamedly. It is our desire and prayer that those who seek employment at Falcon Children’s Home will subscribe to the same position on morality and conduct.
Included under the Falcon Children’s Home, the Royal Home is a maternity home for young mothers. Since it’s inception in 1992, the Royal Home has ministered to over 357 mothers.
The Royal Home offers care, counseling and educational opportunities for young pregnant mothers in a nurturing, protected atmosphere. TRH is committed to serving clients from any race, religion, or national origin. No one is turned away because of their lack of funds. The ultimate goal of The Royal Home program is to provide an alternative to abortion, while redirecting and enriching the lives of expectant mothers.
Through this program, mothers are provided with the opportunity to prepare for life outside of TRH. Opportunities such as in-house classes like childbirth, newborn basics, life skills training, and education and career planning are available. Whether the path of parenting or adoption is chosen by the client, the staff of The Royal Home is there to walk alongside mothers, ensuing the necessary safety, support, care, and encouragement needed for a healthy pregnancy and birth.
The Marvin & Joyce Whitfield Campus was opened in June of 2015. The campus consists of three buildings including; a maternity care home that serves up to 12 clients, a mother and baby apartment complex that is able to house up to 16 mothers and their children, and an administration/training facility.
Baby Hope Club is an outreach sponsored by Girls’ Ministries to donate funds to The Royal Home.
Women’s Ministries also sponsors the Falcon Children’s Home Harvest Train every year. The Harvest Train is an event held on the FCH campus to raise donations to support the ministry. Women’s Ministries teams from across the nation meet at Harvest Train to give their donations to the Children’s Home.
Royal Home Ministries offers counseling and education opportunities for teen pregnant mothers in a nurturing, protected atmosphere. The Royal Home is committed to serving teen mothers and their babies during their time of crisis. Since 1992, the Royal Home has served over 325 young women that sought to provide a brighter future for themselves and their babies. The ultimate goal of Royal Home Ministries is to save innocent babies from abortion and to redirect the life of the mother. Our maternity and mothers and babies program is a new beginning for both.
Classes are offered to clients on a regular basis. These include, but are not limited to, childbirth, newborn basics, and nutrition. Depending on the client’s choice, staff work with them to develop a parenting or an adoption plan. All clients participate in childbirth classes taught by a registered nurse certified to teach childbirth classes.
LIFE SKILLS TRAINING.
All clients will receive life skills training. Life Skills includes, but are not limited to: housekeeping, nutritional menu, planning, money management, personal hygiene / appearance, safety skills, and preparation for independent living.
Information received from the intake/application process is utilized in assessing the client’s educational/vocational needs. The case management team, along with the client, establishes objectives to be included in the plan that will assist in achieving these goals. This plan is reviewed and adjusted on a regular basis. All clients are required to be enrolled in school, working, or serving in a volunteer capacity that develops vocational skills. Clients in high school have the opportunity to attend Falcon Christian Academy, a private academy located on the campus of Falcon Children’s Home or the local public school.
All young ladies are seen by a pregnancy social worker throughout the duration of their stay at our maternity home. The social worker presents choices for either an adoption plan or parenting. Upon choosing a plan, the worker assist the client in setting goals for achieving the plan chosen. Professional counseling services are also made available to our clients to assist in goal setting and planning for their future.
