Eckerd Boomer Campus Hosts Open House on October 16th

Eckerd Boomer campus will host an open house/agency day on Thursday October 16th. The public is invited to tour the campus that currently serves 24 adjudicated youth males and learn more about the services offered to help youth and families in North Carolina.

For teenage boys who have broken the law, Eckerd’s short-term juvenile justice residential program offers rehabilitative services to help youths change their behavior by building on their strengths. The intensive 90-day program is available in North Carolina to boys ages 13-17. Services include individualized academic plans, social and life skills training and vocational education. While receiving support from counselors, the youth continue their education in an accredited program on site. As part of a public-private partnership with the North Carolina Division of Juvenile Justice, the program also puts an emphasis on family transition planning and support.

If you have the desire for making a difference in your community and a passion for helping children and families, please contact Eckerd Boomer Residential Director, Cindi Blackburn- Jones at or 336-921-3300 to learn more about getting involved with our community advisory council.
