A Bit About Us…
Cape Fear Group Homes and Vocational Services is a licensed, private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our EIN# is 581933669. We have served individuals with disabilities for over 25 years. The organization supports the residential and vocational needs of its participants in Wilmington, NC and across the state of North Carolina. During the last 25 years we have significantly impacted the lives of hundreds of clients through our residential group homes and vocational services. Many have been mainstreamed as productive citizens in our community and neighborhoods. Efforts stemming from our inception in the early 1990’s have brought realization to our local communities of the direct effect of deinstitutionalization in their neighborhoods when our 6 bed group homes were established.
Further, our involvement in training disabled individuals to be employed productively in our communities has expanded and we are accepted by many potential employers to work with our clients to improve their work status.
Charitable donations are used to fund community programs for our participants as well as support the development of “paperless”/electronic health record systems. These systems improve record keeping and enhance the overall quality of delivery of services to our participants. Further, we are in the process of expanding our day treatment and vocational training building to better meet the needs of our community.
