The Duke Endowment: Bringing New Hope to Neighborhoods

For decades, Spartanburg’s Northside community and Charlotte’s Boulevard Homes neighborhood grappled with the same problems.

Thankfully, they now share a more hopeful distinction.

The Duke Endowment: Supporting Foster Parents in the Carolinas

As new foster parents, their child’s frequent tantrums concerned them. Not only were the episodes extreme, the triggers were unpredictable. They connected the little girl’s behavior to the trauma she had experienced before joining their family, but it was hard to know how best to respond.

Called ARC Reflections, the skills-building model has been piloted in six child welfare agencies, including five in North Carolina.

With promising results from the test sites, The Duke Endowment is now funding expansion in South Carolina. There’s more to learn, says Phil Redmond Jr., director of the Endowment’s Child Care program area, “but we believe ARC Reflections will help agencies provide a valuable new resource for helping foster families thrive.”
