Who We Are

Founded in 1891, Barium Springs, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, provided services to almost 3,000 children, families and individuals in 2012.  Click here to view our Fact Sheet or our 2012 Annual Report.

The NC Department of Health and Human Services reports that over 200,000 children needed the type of services we provide but only half of those children received help.  Our goal at Barium Springs is to work toward closing this gap so that ALL children and families in North Carolina will receive the help they need.

Our Service Area
Currently, we offer services in 41 North Carolina counties (see map below).  We have 13 different office locations.  Our headquarters are located in Statesville, NC with regional offices in Wilkesboro and Asheville.  For a list of our office locations,click here.

A Full Array of Services
Barium Springs provides an array of services for children, families and individuals throughout North Carolina.  Our three main objectives are to:

  •  Provide “A Safe Home“ through group homes, therapeutic foster care and adoption programs
  • “Heal the Hurt” for individuals that are troubled, abused or neglected
  • Encourage “A Healthy Start” through educational, prevention and developmental programs


Barium Springs is committed to a safe and nurturing family life for every child.
