A FEW OF OUR WOW STATEMENTS

THE MASONIC HOME FOR CHILDREN AT OXFORD, NC

The family-living setting supports normal development and growth.

Five students graduated from High School and all will be attending college
this fall.

Little to no taxpayer dollars support MHCO – it cares for children with
private donations.

MHCO is licensed by the state of North Carolina as a residential foster
home, able to care for 96 children, ages infant to 18

THE SCOTTISH RITE CHILDREN’S LEARNING CENTER

From Director Anne Hollowell
I know everyone wants to hear WOW stuff, but our kids have to work very hard
to make progress.  I think many of them come to a fork in the road and turn
down a different path because of this Center.  We think they are the WOW
factors in our work.

From a parent
I just had to write you and tell you what the fruits of your labor and the
love in your hearts have produced.  Because of you loving and believing in
our son when you had him, HE HAS STAYED ON THE A/B HONOR ROLL FOR THE LAST
TWO YEARS and is being inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.  I
truly believe if you hadn’t been there for him after our 4th grade fiasco,
we would have been dealing with another child.  You never gave up on him.
You used strategies to teach him DIFFERENTLY…and HE SUCCEEDED!!!  We will
never be able to thank you enough.
