A LOOK INTO ODUM HOME HISTORY
Odum Home was originally formed by the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association in 1942 as the Pembroke Indian Orphanage. The home was the first of its kind established for Indian children in North Carolina.
In 1917, Mr. & Mrs. E.L. Odum gave 58 acres of good land for an Indian orphanage. However, the home was not opened until 31 years later without the ODums seeing their dreams come true. At Odum Home, school-age children are given an opportunity to overcome personal and family problems while staff work to preserve or reunify families. Length of placement is determined by the time necessary for the resident and his/her family to achieve their goals.
