Connie Maxwell Main Campus
Connie Maxwell’s largest facility and headquarters for its statewide ministry is the Greenwood campus. Here, school-aged boys and girls live in nine family-styled homes. Live-in staff help to meet the children’s physical, social, and emotional needs. Professional services staff members are a resource for children and their families as they work towards family reunification. The campus has a large activities building, a swimming pool, sports fields, and an infirmary. Children on the Greenwood campus attend public schools and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular school activities. Students 12 and older also have after-school campus jobs to develop good work habits and money management skills. Our Transition to Independent Living program offers youth 16 and older the help needed to prepare for young adulthood.
