The Story of the Carrie Bell Center

Leaving a Legacy

The Carrie Bell Center is named in honor of matriarchs Carrie Lee Glosson and Bell Marie Williams. 

These beautiful women not only ‚Äčopened up their hearts and homes to their children and grandchildren, but to anyone that needed a warm bed, hot meal and encouraging words. Their loved shined through every word, every meal and every hug. It was through their love and example, that Carrie's granddaughter and Bell's grandson would unite in marriage and continue their legacy.


In 2022 a need to implement a transitional program to help young adults 18-22 years of age who are currently in the extended foster care system was implemented for The Carrie Bell Center. These young adults must follow the guidelines for completing high school education, college, trade school, or maintaining full-time employment.


CBC is dedicated to using the latest research and incorporating innovative teaching methods to provide services for individuals to improve their personal and professional growth. Participants in the program will learn the best practices to build a life, education, and job skills. This group is committed to performance-based evaluation to measure progress. The program will empower young adults while providing a safe environment for their continued educational pursuits.
