Barium Springs is a non-profit agency serving 41 counties in NC, including the entire western North Carolina area. Their three main objects in Western NC are to heal the hurt for children and teens who have been abused, neglected or who are troubled; provide a safe home through Hawthorn Heights, a runaway/emergency teen shelter that serves the seven western counties, and encourage a healthy start through intervention and prevention services. In 2012, Barium Springs served 750 individuals, families, and children in Western North Carolina.

 

During the Lunch & Learn, you’ll get an inside look at how we help abused and neglected children, low income families, children needing therapy and many other ways we help the community. You’ll learn about the obstacles some of our youth face every day and how we encourage them to overcome these challenges. And finally, you’ll learn about our vision for the future and the increased needs of children throughout our state. You'll walk away with a real appreciation for the committed efforts of our staff and you'll be forever changed by your visit.
