FALLING WATERS, W.Va. - The Board of Child Care dedicated its residential facility at 730 Brown Road in Falling Waters during a ceremony Tuesday. It began operations on Sept. 10, 2002.
The facility provides social, academic, clinical and behavioral services to West Virginia children who temporarily need out-of-home placement. The goal is to return them to their families.
The site currently houses more than 30 children but has the capacity to hold 50.
On its more than 80,000 square feet, the campus features a school, gymnasium, five living units, administration building, dining hall, clinical and health suite, outdoor swimming pool, recreational facilities and a chapel.
The facility is licensed by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, according to a press release.
