This week in North Carolina we are witnessing an unprecedented natural disaster and we are witnessing an outpouring of care and concern, at the same time. Presently teachers, professors, counselors and educational administrators throughout North Carolina and the region are working hard for the safety of students during the Hurricane Florence. World View offers support as our partners and participants throughout the state and region are experiencing devastating losses of home and community structures caused by the raging winds and flooding from Hurricane Florence.
