History

About Us

Mr. A.D. Peacock, a businessman from Whiteville, found a family struggling to survive. He knew he had to help; the seven cold, hungry and penniless children were desperate. He immediately took action and saved them. From that day forward, he vowed to make a difference in the lives of many more children.

And, he did.

Since 1954, Boys & Girls Homes of North Carolina has been a safe place for young people who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect or other family dysfunction.

B&GH continues to care for vulnerable kids with the same conviction and passion as Mr. Peacock did so many years go.
