Since 1960

The Art of Caring for Kids

Over 50 years ago, the Junior League of Raleigh had a vision for creating a place for medically fragile children with severe developmental disabilities to get the care they need in an intimate, homelike setting. With the generous support of the Civitan Club, the Kiwanis Club, and many concerned citizens, the doors to Hilltop Home officially opened in 1960.

Hilltop Home is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive, individualized services to its residents. Consistent with the beliefs and principles upon which Hilltop Home was founded, these services are provided in an atmosphere that fosters a warm, close relationship with children and their families.
