Foster Village Network Center Opens


Friday April 11th, Neighboring Concepts with Johnson C. Smith University's Dr. Ronald Carter, community members and city officials, gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the former home of Dr. George E. Davis House. This celebration marks the grand opening of the new home to JCSU's Foster Village Network Center.

The historic former home of George E. Davis had undergone a complete renovation and restoration to house administrative offices and conference rooms for the new Foster Village. The vision of former foster father of four and JCSU President Dr. Ronald Carter, the new foster care initiative is a holistic program providing guidance and support to teens that have aged out of foster care as they navigate through the educational system and into college. Directly in line with the Neighboring Concepts mission, the newly restored Davis House will bring welcomed life and energy to the local community, enhance its surroundings and better the lives of its users.
